    Just the arrest will not make any difference, the driver should be heavily punished and should be a lesson to other drivers who should take extra cautions when driving.

    All these road accidents that come about can be directly attributed to the source. That is the weak system we have in place in issuing driving licenses. If there was a better testing of driving ability rather than just merely testing reversing into a parking lot then it'll be much clearer where to draw the line for those who get licenses and those who don't, thereby reducing road accidents. Similar tests must be carried out for the renewal of existing licenses.
