Safety first

It seems there are several people I know who knows this girl.

If you’ve read the article, maybe you’re thinking “such a pity, she’s still so young” or “she’s an angel who is so selfless”. I do agree that it is sad for someone so young to pass on due to a car accident. Her friend’s testimonies of her online is no doubt shows what a good friend she had been and a role model for others to emulate in terms of giving the gift of life.

But wait, could such a tragedy be prevented? I chanced upon her blog (which coincidentally and rather eerily titled “joie de vivre”).  On Dec 14 2009, she wrote “And you know what? I drove back home with the car lights off People were honking and I thought they were honking at other people”. Now, that’s just setting the stage for disaster isn’t it?
