It’s a grievous event, and as a human being, I feel sensitive for her guardians. However, as a driver and a telephone user I likewise comprehend that we need to accept particular obligations for our activities. The individuals who use mobile phones while driving in any way are putting lives at stake. If you want to use your mobile phone to call or text someone or for instance wanna play a Pokemon GO, then draw over. On the off chance that your motor car has Android Auto or CarPlay then off-course use it. Too many fatalities has happened because of using the mobile phones while driving.
