    Many forces drivers are very irresponisible on the road. very seldom, road rules are ignored and seems to be in amighty hurry. High time the authorities keep a close eye and take action.

    As usual would have expected the train to give way! . Should have slammed head on. Wishing the innocent bystanders a speedy recovery.
