Driver is the guiding force for all the travelers . See that the driver is comfortable and he need a proper rest at time of journey .Never compromise. A sleep for second while driving may become dangerous to all travelling

Accidents are very often these days. Its simple it mainly happens due to rash and reckless driving. Hope the injured recover soon from hospital.
