    Luckily no one was seriously injured in this accident. But the community must get actively engaged to prevent the rash of incidents between scooters and autos; autos always win in collisions with scooters.These preventable incidents have severe, painful and costly consequences. They sometimes result in serious injuries and even fatalities. They bring grief, pain, and mourning to families. They cause the territory to unnecessarily expend too much of its limited health care resources on injuries resulting from these preventable incidents. They put a strain on limited national resources and also reduces national output.

    One more death or serious injury is too many. This is a national issue and the territory must make this an urgency to protect its most precious resource---people. It must employ all means and methods to protect both riders, as well as the motoring public. As a starter an aggressive public education and outreach progamme should be launched .
