Auto Accident

In today’s fast world, everything has become very fast and speed has become the other name for life. This theory is applicable for all the different aspects of life. And so it even includes fast driving and riding as well. To add to this the auto manufacturers are coming up with faster cars and bikes everyday. This has lead to an increase in the number of accidents every year and it seems to increase year after year. Although different governmental and non governmental organizations do carry out workshops and other training programs to make people aware of careless driving, yet this whole process has not been very successful till date
