When will the authorities ever realise that it is compulsory to implement the law where all people in a vehicle wear a seat belt. It has been proven that seat belts save lives.

this type of accidents do not occur daily. more than the quality of the road the quality of driving may be the cause of accidents. quality of the road can be judged only by experts also after through examination and not by looking at political affiliations.
