These kind of accidents happen most of the time to the vehicles driven by teenagers and middle aged persons (18~29 yrs) who drive receklessly as if there is no tomorrow. They do not have any one to bother them and nobody will be dependent on them. They will have money and do not know how to spend the same. They never thnk of other co-passengers and others on road. It is sad that even though there are many warnings, these guys do not heed to such warnings and their familes suffer to their acts.

I have absolutely no problems with these kind of people. But why should these idiots bang into somebody else and hurt / kill them before killing themselves. Indian Railways is the best option for them. Just jump in front of one of those speeding trains. It doesn't get the train driver into any trouble....at the same time they get their wish fulfilled too. Killed by speeding.

Ahem - beg to differ

1: Trauma and mental anguish of train driver - if he happened to see the person on line
2: Inconvenience to thousands of commuters held up due to immediate crime scene investigation

Yes the driver might get aftected, but those commuters WILL CONTINUE life as if nothing happened....compared to the life of those affected by drunken driving incidents.

On second thoughts, i agree with you. Maybe they should find better / cleaner ways to DISPOSE themselves.

A little of commensense with responsibility towards society and families would reduce these ghasty acts to a very large extent.

Hey, we also need to consider the fact that a city like Bangalore, has a very poor public transport system. And at night its even worse.
The only option left is to use your own mode of transport even if its after a party.

Though this does not justify drunken driving, its not entirely their fault.
