Though it is common in big cities thinking from the suffering party it is so miserable. Though we,pedestrians come in alert the passing vehicles we cannot expect. No vehicles are running with control except very few, that too elderly people. On the other hand, many accidents happening due to the continuous talking of the pillion rider to the vehicle driving person. I am seeing daily in our area a wife was talking continuously to her husband while going to the office in the morning. Are they have no time to talk or discuss in other places or if so, let them discuss in a park or hotel. without knowing the danger if they are talking like this, the rider with much hesitation has to run the vehicle and his carefulness should be more in such situations.
I saw a video clipping of an accident in a train as the husband got alighted from the train by knowing that train was not their train but before the lady got down the train start moved and in urgency, her legs were trapped under the wheels and she totally collapsed.
