Roads Just Keep Getting Worse, Here

Perhaps the fact that accidents are being reported in the newspapers on a regular basis will be a wake up call. I had lunch with a friend, here, yesterday, and we talked about this a bit. How driving, in some ways, is so different from driving anywhere else. It is not at all uncommon to see children sitting in the front completely unrestrained - children - plural. And how, if you stop to offer assistance at an accident, here, you can and will be blamed if anything happens to the people involved in the wreck. Mind boggling.

While authorities are busy talking about road conditions and attending the National Human Rights Society's seminars the bodies continue to "pile up." Talk all you want. Action is what is needed. And, it is not going to happen.

Accidents reported today are here and here. Total dead [reported], four. Total injured? Numerous.
