Here, in this post, you will get to know the consequence of negligence on part of other which had led to the tragic death of senior international official during the year 2017.
The Myanmar Counsel General in Kolkata died in the morning hours in a district in Jharkhand (India). He died on the spot while the other three occupants including his wife, his driver and his personal adviser were got injured in the incident. The driver of the official was forced to swerve to an adjoining lane when a 2 wheeler came in front of the car, all of a sudden. The car was then hit by a truck, from behind. The state chief minister expressed grief over his death.
The apparent factors that had led to unfortunate demise of the official are:
Unsafe driving by the 2 wheeler rider
The time of occurance of the accident, around 9:45 AM which happens to be hurry hour for reaching timely the offices / business centres
The lack of alertness of the car diver
You may know and feel importance of safe driving, but you must impress upon the same to your driver, when your vehicle is driven by your driver. Same must be in regular practice.
During office opening hours, YOU/your driver must keep restraint in the speed of your vehicle.
Person driving Two-wheeler must drive defensively so that he/she would not become reason for any fatal accident, due to him/her.
For reaching offices / business centres timely, one must start about 10-15 minutes early so that the morning drive will not become a hurry drive.
Drive safely / defensively, more so in critical conditions, e.g. morning hurry hours of week days, rainy / foggy days, whenever YOU feel fatigue / sick, if need to drive during late night / early morning.
Above are photos taken in succession today at around 10:30 am at Airport road in Mohali.
Firstly, the car driver went over the zebra crossing. The next moment, the car driver went past the zebra crossing on seeing the two-wheeled rider who stopped after crossing the zebra x-ing.
YOU must not be amongst the above two types of drivers. If you are hesitant to say yes, I earnestly request you to practice safe driving. Rather, it should be safe driving for all vehicles smaller than your’s and defensive driving for all vehicles bigger than your’s. A small negligence may prove to be fatal.
I’m sure, you will take the above positively and make safe/defensive driving your habit. In addition, you must pass on the above concern to your family & all friends.
Undoubtedly, Authorities must do their part by taking stringent and constant measures to ensure non-happening of such incidents.
Above pictures show the “chalta hai” attitude of an commercial firm and transport agency as well as the driver of the vehicle. Above photo has been captured today in an industrial area of Mohali (Punjab). The transport vehicle is carrying long iron strips, overhanging from it.
You must have heard number of incidents wherein car / two wheeler get collided with such commercial vehicles carrying either over sized or over weighing material. The consequences of the incidents, happened particularly in night hours had been fatal and resulted in deaths of numerous innocent people.
Owners of commercial firms as well as transport owners must not do things for cost cutting which may do harm to others. They must act with due responsibility towards safety of other road users.
Authorities must be very strict so that mishaps due to movement of such vehicles can be avoided.
I have been mentioning some past incidents, only to make you aware so that you can correct your ways of driving / moving outside. It is better now than to cut a sorry figure, later.
YOU must learn from the past road accidents so that no one gets involve in such mishaps and loose his/her life.
Here, in this post, you can see the consequence of negligence on more on one part which had led to the tragic death of a youth aged 26 in September 2017. The incident happened on his birthday and Roka Ceremony of the youth had been finalized within couple of days, from the date of mishap.
The various apparent factors that when combined had shattered the dreams of the family are:
Time of incident: 10:30 PM
Location: Sharp curve on wide road of City
Over speed of the vehicle
Returning in hurry, on his birthday
Non-protection by Safety feature of vehicle
Whenever YOU need to drive your vehicle after daytime, YOU must move at speed lesser than your normal speed, more so when you have to pass through any curved road, road crossing, residential area, school/college, hospital area etc.
Car manufacturers must clearly mention the safe speeds under various conditions and regularly encouage their customers to follow safe driving practices, as their customer welfare measures.
YOU must be having the habit of Moving Safely and remain yourself & keep others SAFE

On seeing in detail, you will observe that person driving vehicle no. 2 has parked his car keeping good space for himself, but has blocked clear space required for the driving person of vehicle no. 2.
One important issue called ‘Road Rage’ may crop-up from wrong parking & stopping of vehicles, which may lead to severe consequences, to the extent of death of one/more that get involved in such incident.
