I begin to wonder if this is how auto crash has been happening in all these developed countries. But I want to believe this is not how it's been happening over there. This January alone, lots of people are gone, these are avoidable deaths, let us all learn to drive cautiously on the highway. Know that one's u're in a car or bus, u are already in a semi coffin.
