Roads are unsafe. Driving is reckless. People are drunk while driving. To save time journey involving long driving is undertaken during night. Driver gets drowsy on the seat. Life too has lost its meaning and purpose. It is mad, mad aimless race.
These roadways bus drivers drive like they are racing a ferrari. They are super reckless people
It is strange that all negative news from UP finds front pages. I'm sure that this is not the only accident that occurred in the country today but why is UP always in the limelight?
Speeding is the mostly likely cause for high fatality.

UP represents a slightly more corrupt, under-reported caste conscious version of India.
Nothing is going right in UP! Rapes are going on every day! People are suffering. Even cows are dying in the gau shalas!!!.
