Time has come for the proper experts the Physicists to take over the designing of vehicles from the Engineers whose knowledge of Physics and Mathematics is very limited.This kind of tragedy should not happen in the 21st century.

Only the engineers would vote against this important comment.Peoples lives are infinitely more important than the artificially hyped engineering education.

many people drive on the expressway as if they are on a normal street WE CANNOT HAVE driving discipline and rules one for the roadways and another for the expressway. some idiots will try to pass another vehicle just in front of you by cutting you off thinking that you are able to stop.
