Humans always have a way of pushing blames to someone or something else definitely away from themselves when it’s actually their fault.
The road serves as a connection between people, market, education and employment which is very essential but as a road user, I get disappointed when I see drivers and motorcyclist with one hand on the wheel and the other holding their phones to their ear’s, distracted drivers, the same thing that has caused crash and have put others to sleep forever.
We often get startled and sympathetic when we read of accidents especially those that took lives yet we go into our cars and do the exact same mistake they made.
We blame the roads they are bad and amount to the high cause of death on the road, but even on smooth roads like Abuja, there are cases of road accident.
A bad road is more like a safer road, the driver will pay close attention and are very careful even slowdown in other not to scratch or spoil their cars but if the roads were to be smooth, they ride on top speed which is the reason of some accident in the first and second quarter of 2017 according to the National Bureau of Statistics.
Bad road reduce speeding, overtaking and inappropriate changing of lanes, bad roads are safer but it also hampers the growth of the economy and should be repaired as they are required for the transportation of goods and many more. Drivers should realize they cause the crash and quit blaming the roads, if the road gets bad you call on the governor and when it gets repaired you cause a crash. there are lots of reasons why the crash happened apart from the road being bad check out: eight (8) causes of road accidents.
Keep yourself and others alive today, drive safely.
