    As long as we have lunatic and drugs users as drivers, these accidents will get worse.

    The entire roads covering the hill country should have strong protective railings to prevent similar accidents. It should have been done decades ago.Britain built the roads for her own benefits for transporting “our resources” to the sea ports using our drivers without any safety for the “natives” and we stupidly continuing without any changes, what the colonial masters left for us .
