    Rip Usha
    Seeing the number of accidents daily maybe in addition to improving emergency services we can also think about organ preservation for donation.

    RIP sister.
    As a footnote, I would never recommend a two wheeler even to my enemy.
    It is risk lurking at any moment in time.

    Most of the accidents happens in India due to:
    > Lack of Traffic Rules EMFORCEMENT
    >Lack of Safety Standards or AWARENESS to Drivers and People
    >NO fines/Penalty to rules violators either to Driver or People (Even People need penalty crossing at Wrong place /At Wrong time/Intersections..etc in main City/town)
    >NO Defensive training class to Drivers before any renewal of license/Permit..etc which has to be done Dept of Transportation thatz going to make drastic decrease in accidents.
    >Ofcourse .. Emergency Response/Ambulance within 20 minutes to save accident victim...if EMS(In case ..Emergency Medical Service is too late that causes for many organ failure and very hard to respond or No responding for the treatment)
    If No responding to the treatment.. you know what happens..?
    Today Mumbai alone average 7 people per day.. come under the train wheel by crossing track at wrong time/wrong place ..

    If every single Individual's goal is to live longer...Above things are very simple and below cost effective..
    RIP to the victim who lost her innocent life.

    O my goodness this is ridiculous. She was a soft spoken good lady. Was she riding the two wheeler all the way from Udupi? That was dangerous as the big vehicles move on the highway recklessly. I miss her she was too good. May her soul rest in peace.
