Stay safe while travelling

It was reported recently in this paper that in a rush to travel home and come back over the Eid holidays, at least 242 people were killed and 331 injured in 201 road accidents across the country, while 74 people were killed, 39 injured and 17 remained missing in 33 accidents on waterways. 

The authorities definitely need to intervene more strictly and ensure that the root causes for such accidents are eliminated and at the same time, the commuters too must do what they are supposed to and act responsibly.

Why is it that we realise the importance of safety only after it's too late? It has cost countless lives and will continue to do so unless strict measures are taken.
