    Warnings are not enough, every inter-city and inter-state roads must be changed to one direction traffic, there shouldn’t be face-to-face old schools system. Most of these accidents are preventable if our people can suppress their primitive ways of doing things. Road signs must be sufficiently instructive and drivers must obey them; how could one impatient driver terminates the lives of others while he was breaking the law?
