Road Rash

Most of you would ve played or seen someone play the game called Road Rash. Or maybe NFS. The objective of the game is racing. The street/road is the circuit. In case you’ve played it, you surely would’ve hit people crossing the road, kicked other bikers off track, had your car/bike flipped over etc. You hit the “recover” key and start playing again, or in the worst case, restart the game.

With life, you do not have such choices. If you crash your vehicle like you did in those games, there is no way that you are getting up. Even in the closed circuits like that of an F1 track, we’ve seen how dangerous it is. Felipe Massa’s accident last season being a case in point.

How many of us actually care to follow the rules and drive safely? Even if suicide is ethical, do you have a right to take others’ lives? Does anyone realize that by breaking the rules, over speeding, using the mobile phone while driving etc you are putting not only your life, but others’ lives in danger as well? A little bit of caution from everyone can prevent a lot of “accidents”(they are actually not accidents because its all our own fault).

Note : Manu, a very close friend of mine and his extended family met with a fatal crash a couple of days back. A speeding bus crashed into their car. A little bit of caution from the Bus Driver could’ve avoided this mishap.

R.I.P brother. We all will miss you forever. 😥

    People can do better than just talk about safe driving. You are blogging about it because you know that it is a question of life and death, and like you said, not many realize that; some, knowing that too violate all rules on the planet to rule the road and hence make life miserable for themselves a.w.a for others.

    Deeply sorry for your loss.

    Our driving habits need to change. And unless that sense of change comes from within, no law in the world can change things.
