I hope you will appreciate my effort and also my essays. We also know the consequences of not following the traffic rules.
Still, the irony is no one follows it and by the time a person realizes his/her mistake, it’s too late.

It can be said that it’s bad luck because there was no way by which the person could have guessed its coming or could have done anything to protect his/her house but if you are going on your bike and due to some reason, your bike slips and you get a serious head injury. According to a credible research, most of the road accidents could be avoided or their effect could be minimised if proper precautions are taken.

Where it is written “no parking”, there one can easily find many vehicles parked. I think, this is the biggest reason of road accidents.
