and it goes on

how can i help not seeing omens around when after seeing four accidents in four days yesterday my mother was in one on the pune expressway. the car rammed into a pole on the highway somewhere near panvel when my uncle who was driving the car fell asleep at the wheel (another strange coincidence?) although my mother has a hairline fracture on the shoulder, and her face (on the left side) and chest have been badly bruised, it could have been so much worse. she is to be in the hospital for two more days before she can get home. luckily, my aunt and my uncle both had seat belts on and received only a few superficial injuries.

That must have been terrifying. The Pune expressway is so easy to drive on that it does have a hypnotic effect, making you doze off. I've often felt that myself. Hope both of them get well soon.

i dont know if this is the right time, right place to say - but it gives a big clue to designers for 'designing roads' - one of the major phenomenon of such expressways is 'sleep factor'...and quite coincidental - my uncle too fractured his chin riding his bike and dozing off for a second a few days ago (well, not in Mumbai though)!
