Its seems to Horrible.

But my Condolences to the Girl who died & her family.
Hope that all others serious in the accident recover soon.

This has created a lesson to all others tht dont mix drink with drive.

i think we've had more than enough of our share of such lessons. these people deserve to have their licenses revoked and thrown off the roads.

Default wake up call people!

this is real sad whats worse is people who drink and drive convince themselves that they are in control and know what they're doin until somethin like this happens and when they go down they take other people with them which i think is the worst part ....... even for smokers its a serious no no , unless they want to ride/drive off a cliff where noone else is in their way !

May the girls soul rest in peace. Friends it's very easy to criticize someone else for driving rash & being agressive on roads....we all live just once....PLEASE caution your relatives & friends who drive recklessly as their actions could not only cost them their own lives but someone else's too...

Before criticizing the driver, think about following:
  • When did you drive without seatbelts last time?
  • When did you drive with co-passengers without seat belt last time?
  • When did you push your car to the limit last time? and On which road?
  • When did you drive at +80kmph on busy city streets last time?
  • When did you drive like maniac to feel that andrenline pumping last time or to impress your wife/girlfriend?
  • When did you drink and drive last time?
If you have done any of above recently, think before criticizing the driver. Probably you, yourself could have been in his place.

Agreed.. if you want to do all these things ALONE and put your life on the line go ahead.. but man.. when you have even ONE person in the car with you... THINK... Im not trying to start anything here.. but come on... we all hear about these things everyday and say NAH THATS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME.. then who does it happen to, and how come we read about it day in and day out here?

We can put efforts to manage/control whatever we can, by "atleast" being careful! Right?

By the same logic you could be sitting home and a plane could crash through your roof... there are some things you cant control.. your right about that.. but if you decide to drink and then drive.. then your just begging for trouble

You read me wrong there...i meant no matter how safe u try to be, it can always be the other guys fault and there will be nutin u can do abt it.

And abt drinkin and driving, its ur wish, ur car and ur life on the line as long as u don't ruin any other poorman's life.
By 'ur', i din't mean you
