    Can we ever learn? Must we allow several lives to die before we
    do the right thing.
    The movement of petroleum products shouldn't be by road, let there be other means.

  12. We so much believe God will protect us that we behave carelessly. These deaths could have been averted if they make the roads safer and stop using trucks that are already at their dieing state.
