Suggestions included an evaluation of professional drivers, an awareness campaign, and a contingency plan to improve controls on roads. The president of the professional drivers union said that they weren’t the only ones having accidents and the authorities have responsibility because of the lack of speeding controls. <So the drivers will keep speeding because it’s the police’s job to catch them before they flip the bus over?> According to ANT, the 5 main causes of accidents is driving while distracted, speeding, abrupt lane changes, not maintaining a safe distance between vehicles, and not ceding the right of way. <I guess you can do all of those while you’re driving drunk, and do them better than sober drivers.>
