    They should implement a special training for heavy vehicle drivers in order to minimise such accidents that could be easily prevented

    High speed, carpeted roads, bold tires and haste = accidents due to lack of control of the vehicle. Thousands of innocent lives are lost.

    Why.... don't our drivers read daily papers and learn a lesson? Everyday deaths... traffic deaths! innocent lives....

    add to that substandard vehicles with zero safety features, which exist only because the poor people cannot import a better vehicle due to insane taxes.

    We should inspect the vehicle once a year..
    NOT only the Emission test.. brakes and many other things..

    Dimo batta/batti are not heavy vehicles, those accidents are about general attitude about safety. No care about self and others
