When so many street-accidents are taking place each year, why is the government not alert in controlling the accidents? There are so many reasons for street accidents. Some reasons are mentioned here-
Most car riders in the street forget that they are not the only drivers who are on the street. Lots of cars are moving one by one to the same direction, and crossing from the opposite direction. The reckless drivers are always aggressive to move forward caring less about the traffic rules and accident happens to the car.
If you drive with care, probably accidents will not occur for your fault. But, when you are drunk, you cannot control yourself! Then, how is it possible to control your car? Therefore, if you love yourself, your family members and loved ones, you need to be careful to your driving.
Rain And Fog
Rain and fog are common to the Indian streets. When it is rain, the streets become slippery and when it is foggy, the front view shrinks remarkably. If the speed is not under control, it is obvious to happen to an accident.
The deadly curves are the most remarkable reasons for road accidents. The speed should always be reduced while facing a deadly curve. If the previous speed is high and you forget to reduce the speed on time, it is sure to face a dreadful accident.
If you control yourself and drive by following proper traffic rules, you can save at least 70% of the street accidents. If you really face an accident, you should give a call to 1033 (toll-free) number to get help.
