The drivers driving the forces vehicles are overconfindence bcos some of them bliv that they can not be questioned even by the traffic officers.so they drive as they r the only users of the road.they know but they assume en ignore the simple rules.

Nobody loves death…if they knew they were to die im sure hawangeenda isiolo.The driver have bn driving ever since,he made no accidents.Ajali haina kinga no matter how competent you are!

In kenya ther are fiew or non accidents, these is just first degree marder,according to my school of DEFENSIVE DRIVING.accendent is what happens without prior warning and the vihecle will automatically communicate to driver that either brake linings or bad have defect or when you are the road anticipate anything can happen,you cause or somebody can cause inconvinient to you even if you are on the right side. And if someone indicates with lights that something is wrong don’t assume and starting talking to yourself that “now look this whom is he lighting this daylight” and maybe he is warning you that my brake is not working get out of the way!

to me as also a competent driver..in case of a tyre bust its a 50/50 case to servive.then the speed matters also.ofcourse this vehicle was in high speed.no skill the driver could hve applied.an accident is an accident.no worrier in it.lets accept the situation their tyme hve reached and there is nothing to judge here..because even the pilot himself cannot explain what happened exetral

hi.this is just cover en judgements. human is to error.todays morning…at narumoru police station in nyeri county..two police hve perished in the same manner.the vehicle a toyota landcruser is new in stable condition.it rolled in a very clear black spot.so pple should learn that skill are also in humans to apply when you can make it….
