  1. sad and sympathy TO THE FAMILES. I was just wondering if he had helmet and passenger maybe he could have been alive today. Sometimes our own carelessness of speeding and not slowing down can save a life. same way we have good roads and life is lost because people are racing on them, If the road is bad just slow down and take your time. There is no need to rush for your funeral.
