    I hope this is a wake up call for ALL drivers who drive without due care and attention. Stop running traffic lights and refrain from texting and lengthy conversation on your cell.

    This should not only happen when people lose their lives…but it’s a start.

    The manslaughter charge can’t come until after the autopsy.

    The cradle of indiscipline which is now very prevalent on our highways,starts with the bicyclists,who shows no regards for the highway regulations and other road users in general. Pretty soon that bicyclist advances to a motor cycle and continues his indiscipline at a higher speed. Next he becomes a PSV driver, and all of a sudden we want to crucify him for what he has been doing from a child , with impunity. The authorities must share some of the blame for sitting back and doing absolutely nothing, or very little to offending push bike and motor cycle riders.
    There is an old saying about bending the tree whilst it is yet young.
