I saw an accident in the morning.
The biker was riding on the wrong side and suddenly a car stuck in front of him and there was a head on collision, biker flew in the air and got shoot by the splitter.
He was badly injured and his blood was spilled over the route.
On witnessing the accident, I stopped for a few seconds and thought to help him, but already many people assembled around the scenery.
I went towards my office with images of the accident in my mind.
Whose fault is it really?
We can well blame the biker for driving on the wrong side, but I think we all are responsible.
We promote traffic rules violation if no cop is around.
We overtake from the wrong side by stating “everyone is exercising it”
We drive on the wrong side of the road to avoid a traffic jam.
I’m equally to be blamed as on several occasions, I rode on the wrong side of the road by simply following the bikes. If you drive on Hinjewadi Road (in Pune), it’s a usual to watch the vehicle tailing each other like an ant along the wrong side of the road.
Everyone is cognizant of the perils of driving on the wrong side and breaking the rules yet we exploit every single chance.
Friends, Rules are made for our own refuge. So follow them all, please.
You might reach your office 10 minutes late, but at least you will reach safely.
Chance events can also happen due to any other person’s mistake, so Wear Helmet and Seat belts.
