Chathannur accident shows us the importance of traffic rules

Small mistakes often lead to big accidents. In the case of road accidents, mistakes can even cost us our lives. One such accident was witnessed here in Kollam district on Friday.

A two-wheeler collided with a car near a petrol pump in Chathannur around 12 pm. The couple on the scooter, Biju Daniel and wife Shirley Samuel (37), was trying to cross to the other side of the busy road when they were hit by a speeding car coming in the opposite direction.

It is very much important to ensure that vehicles are not coming from either side of the road while trying to get to the other side of a busy road. Drivers also have to adhere to the speed limits while driving through busy junctions in order to avoid accidents such as this.
