  13. This is very touching all those tipper should be properly put in order before hitting the road, within 24hrs the number of deaths are increasing. God please help us in this country.

  14. What a waste of life of a struggling mother and her child, trailer and truck drivers should be adequately sensitized by all the necessary bodies on safe driving practice on our roads eg proper vehicle maintenance to ensure every part is functioning optimally.

  15. This is so painful. Look out how a mother and her child that just came from the house to look for what to eat lost their lives due to recklessness of another person. Maybe dat trailer has a brake problem he just drove it out like that because if anything should happen it will them affect them (drivers) the most.

  16. Traffic and road safety personnel need to up their games. Vehicles inspection must be thorough.
