Some people are just so lucky they were able to avoid the accident unscathed. But the same thing cannot be said for the others, unfortunately. No matter how cautious you are on the road, there’s always going to be that inevitable accident that’s going to happen. While some are caused by circumstances that we have no control of, there are others that could have been prevented if proper road etiquette is only observed.
