This overloading can cause pressure on the vehicle and avert the vehicle on the road due to minor turns or slippery roads. It not only destroyed the overloaded vehicle but also many other vehicles nearby.

Accidents and mishaps can be mitigated if driving is taken as seriously as it is. Instead, people enjoy driving and get amazed with side views. Sometimes,s drivers suddenly stop the car to see the enthralling view or point of interest. But the vehicle behind is unable to predict this sudden break, and in this way, both vehicles crash into each other. 

8. Not Using Signals
