I edge all drivers to go for defensive driving and at least 2 years of driving experience before you start driving long distances like BT to LL.
There are three golden rules to avoiding road accidents; drive a car which is fit on the road, be skilled and smart on the road and don’t drive under any influence be it alcohol, excitement, sadness,any drug,fatigue and many more.
