    What is different with bowser and motorcycle. Parked Bowser big object also red color. Very much visible. Secondly road also wide and spacious. Bowser’s driver not at fault. ANYHOW OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHIES FOR THE I P’S FAMILY.

    Big or small parked vehicles on roads should switch on the HAZZARD WARNING LIGHTS. Otherwise vehicle coming behind assumes it's a moving vehicle in front until it's too late to brake and stop or to bypass it.

    Petty negligence is a norm of all. Out of all accidents it may observed 90% due to safety negligence issues.

    If it was a tree, would that also have been arrested?

    Roadside trees and parked vehicles are similar objects, if ride consciously.

    In Sri Lanka hazard lights are used by VIPs to threaten other vehicles on the road.
