    Some of these yakkos simply do not know the basics of driving on a highway. Even a doctor with the sign on his windscreen was driving like a monkey. This is beyond calling "Silly" but plain ignorance and basic discipline.

    Lets not blame those innocent victims. Our roads are not enough at all. People are in confused state of mind seeing war and no vision politicians. Get the viechle to road ratio right, have a plan to improve road network, gradually introduce curriculum to education to make better understanding people. SL shd be back on track.

    At least good part of the accidents are due to three wheels, motor bikes and Buses. they are either directly involves in accidents or causes panic and congestion by their irresponsible acts. Regulate the bikes and buses. stop the import of the wheels. Small cars such as nano are the alternatives if the import tax is reduced.
