What caught my attention was the way goods were tied up to the body. It was so carelessly tied up that it seemed it might fall down any time and cause an accident. I was thinking what if the goods fell down on a car! I asked the driver why he tied the goods that way. He reluctantly said, “It's perfectly alright. It will never fall down.” I asked what if it fell down. He said, “Then it would be an accident. And nobody has control on accident.” Then I told him I had taken a photo of his truck. He grinned and said, “I don't care at all.”
My question is who has to take care of this carelessness; the driver or traffic police?
