challenge of making our roads safer can be met only with the whole hearted
support and commitment of the entire community. So what can we do to help as

you are sure that they are 'safe'. Remember, you are inspiring others to violate
law and they may do so under not so safe circumstances.

responsibility of taking the victim to a hospital and waiting for his family to
appear. Remember- it could have been you. (See Link)

regulation and law enforcement join as a marshal or inform us what you want to
do and how we can help you with it.
