    So sad. Out of control vehicles killing people unsuspecting problems. Stop driving irresponsibly. That’s what causes problems.

    I’m so sick about car accidents. People do not take resposability. Driving is a serious thing. Respect the rules because you dont want to put others people’s live at risk besides accidents causes a lot of traffic, which drive me nuts
