I saw an accident in front of my eyes.
The biker was driving on the wrong side and suddenly a car got in front of him and there was a head on collision, biker flew in the air and got hit by the divider.
He was severely bruised and his blood was spilled over the road.
On seeing the accident, I stopped for a few seconds and thought to help him, but already many people gathered around the scene.
I proceeded towards my office with images of the accident in my head
Whose fault is it?
We can easily blame the biker driving on the road side, but I guess we all are responsible.
We promote traffic rules violation if no cop is around.
We over take from the wrong side by saying “everyone is doing it”
We drive on the wrong side of the road to avoid a traffic jam on the other side.
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 common sight to see the vehicle tailing each other like an ant on the wrong side of the road.
Everyone is aware of the perils of driving on the wrong side and breaking the rules yet we exploit every single opportunity.
Friends, Rules are made for our own safety. So please follow them.
You might reach your office 10 minutes late, but at least you will reach safely.
Accidents can also happen due to any other person’s fault, so Wear Helmet and Seat belts.
