    most of the drivers are too young, no basic education, uses hard drugs and from poor background. They don’t value life’s. Brakes don’t just fail, it gives you sign. Desending from such hill with or without good breaks, big vehicles should slow down. In such accident, truck owner should be arrested. All they are after is money, they don’t care about drivers mental state n our softy.
