Bad Roads Vs Good Roads: Which Is Responsible For Accidents? by Greatzeus(m): 6:21pm On Dec 23, 2018
I traveled to Ilesha few days ago,for solar system maintenance for one of our clients,a bank. I noticed that when we get to bad roads the driver slows down, but when we get to very good roads,he speeds to the extent that some will start cautioning him. Thank God for the safe journey.
So I was asking myself,what really causes accident,i have seen people always attributing car accidents to bad roads and failure of government. But to me I think bad roads cause traffic and delay in vehicular movements,thereby increasing the time it takes for people and goods to get to their destination,which is bad for business and the economy, because time is money.
Whereas good roads gives drivers a license to speed,so as to make as many trips as possible within a time frame,thereby resulting in more money.
Thats my own opinion,what do you think guys?
And to all those planning to travel this Yuletide, praying for safe journey isn't enough,I'm sure many who have lost their lives also prayed,yet accidents still happened. God will not do for man what he can do for himself. He has given you a brain so that you will disturb him less.
Do your part, service your car,don't drink before your journey,don't start a journey if you haven't had enough rest during the day. Don't risk your life and that of your innocent family.
If you are following public transportation, avoid those who are known for reckless driving,check the cars or buses very well, sometimes the state of the chassis also determines the state of the engines. Always caution your drivers when they start driving recklessly. You only have one life, wishing you safe journey mercy wink
Lalasticlala,you know the deal,let us spread the word and save lives this Yuletide wink

It's a combination of both..... I would rather have good roads.......


The variable factor is human judgement, lack of judgement and not fully understanding and assimilating the etiquette of good driving skills and driving mannerisms........
