I am sure all will agree that simple solutions can prevent major accidents. Absence of street lights is the biggest problem. Plants can also be planted in highway dividers to avoid blinding from the headlights of vehicles driving from the opposite direction. Road reflectors can also guide a driver. Request the authorities to look into these simple solutions.
