Please let us all observe and follow rules, always be mindful on your driving. Even if it is a minor accident, and thankfully no other serious injuries or fatalities have been obtained, we are still causing delay on the road and disruption to other vehicles. So it is still important to practice caution.

You may already have gotten your driver’s license, but this does not mean we should be complacent. In fact, we should be more responsible in the safety of our passengers, ourselves, and the other drivers.
