In monsoons we have to be very careful while driving the vehicle as the roads are slippery and the vehicle goes out of control.

Accident usually a happens in a fraction of second. So we should always be at our safety when we are driving the vehicle. RIP Raju

How sad? We have to always move at limited speed as the unexpected hurdles can be avoided.
