    People should not be hurried to reach the destination which will not run away from life but you should focus on what you are doing ! Car is lifeless machine which controlled by the human being ! people never learnt the lesson from the life. The roads are constructed in a unscientific manner curves and turns and the no notice of Speed to be in that particular road to follow !
