“We are pleading and will continue to plead with road users, especially drivers to reduce their speed. Speed kills and its mistake cannot be corrected.
“If the driver knew what would happen as a result of speed violation, he would have taken caution and exercised patience.
“Please let us learn from the experience of others. We do not have to learn by our own experiences because one may never have the opportunity to tell the tale.”
