It feels there is lack of investigative/fact finding reporters now adays and all types of vehicles crashes given a single reason and that is"over speeding" which is not right always. We have highwayswith quite high speed limits of 120kph and if you are driving at thisspeed a minor road hazard could become fatal. We need to educate roadusers not only about driving but also how to deal with sudden roadhazards, keep calm and don't get panic in emergency situations which isthe most dangerous thing and could convert the incident into deadlyaccident.
