    Rest in Peace

    Hi Rushil,

    I don't think airbags would have made any difference. Look at the way the Scorpio has mangled. Having said that, I am totally in support for more mandatory safety features for vehicles. In addition to safety features, the driver must also drive safely. I am still amazed by how the car crossed the median and crashed into an oncoming truck. Looks like the Scorpio was being driven at a very high speed .

    All said and done, I pray for the families of these students and pray for the recovery of the injured.

    Indian roads are not for speed it’s just means to reach destination. In most of the highways you find either cows or unexpected vehicles from opposite sides it confuses driver .

    Our traffic police department does not punish the idiots who use high beam lights unnecessarily.
    high beam lights causes temporary blindness which results in fatal accidents.Please ban using high beam lights unnecessarily. Om Shanti. RIP
