  • That truck driver was speeding and driving recklessly before he got to the round about . He probably does not know the road well so doesn’t know of the speed bumps where the drives slow down. That’s probably why he ended up swerving. Happy to hear there was o loss of life. People, we need to take more care when driving on the roads.

  • The authorities need to remove the grid lines( or whatever they call it) that they placed on the road in that vicinity to slow down the speed of drivers. For drivers that are not aware of it, the sudden slow down can cause other vehicles to run into your back, to prevent this something similar to what happened here can occur thus endangering many lives.
