Road mishap turns into disaster

Razib's death by road accident was talk of the town in last April. Then thousands of writings about road accident published in the newspapers for raising awareness and stop road accident. But road accident is still occurring in a devastating way.
In this week 3 university students - Fuad, Masud Rana and Sowrob died by road accident. Like them everyday many people breath their last by road accident. At least 7,397 people were killed and 16,193 others were injured in 4,979 road accidents last year. Among the injured, 1,722 were maimed. I don't know if there is any county where people die by road clash like our country.
Every day 400 cases filed against buses and fined them a huge amount.  But road accident is not under control. Nowadays it has turned into a disaster.  We don't want any more waste of life by road clash.  So I hope, the government will take necessary steps to stop road accident.
