    The Common threat to Motorists and Pedestrians is wrong side drivers.
    Please promise yourself that you will never drive wrong side ..however small the stretch is .
    Also Driving license should not be issued to persons above 60 years of age ..the reflex is slow and mind body coordination is zero

    sense- Shetty mangalore,I think their mind set is better than a younger people who drive with alcohol and drugs.They have more experience and drive with concentration.whereas younger blood gives more gas and always in a hurry.when you compare the statistics just see who died more in accidents on the road ,younger or old.Please dont give the elder one always the mistake because I suppose you are young?.You will understand it when you get elder .the difference.

    Such accidents usually occour at cross roads - teen rasta or chaar rasta.Speed ,haste and blind corners are responsible.
