Its better to supply petroleum products through pipelinss to avoid such accidents. Because the major one is always due to a tanker collision.

People drive like a maniac when the roads are well-concreted. Such major accidents occur only when the speed is uncontrollable.

The trucks have become cause for the accidents these days. How many people die everyday in accidents?The speeding meter of the vehicle has to be adjusted such that speed doesn’t go beyond 60.
