this number of casualties in Pakistani accidents tells us the overall safety on road. Both public and government is involved. No one follow the rules. Motorcycles are normally operated by kids, so are cars and even public transport. This country is complete mess. There is no provision for crossing road, every one is on the road, animals, humans and vehicles
