A five-year-old girl dies after being hit by a
reversing car in Bangalore.
Take a moment and look for children before you
reverse your car.

We are so careless that we do not consider it
necessary to first turn around in our seat and
make sure that there is no one behind our car
before we reverse our car. No one expects the
car to go reverse when it is facing the opposite
way. Many cars do not sound the reverse alarm
before they move with the reverse gear.
The driver is guilty of murder if there is any death
while he is operating his car, and it is not any less
a crime if the death occurs while he is reversing
the car. A car that suddenly reverses will cause
either injury or death to the person who is over-run
by the car. The injured person is not guilty of any
negligence for being behind the car at a time when
the car is parked and it suddenly moves
backwards. It is entirely the fault of the driver if he
reverses the car before he makes sure there is no
one behind the car.

Please spare our children from death due to reckless driving.
(July 2008-1st)
Sindhu, aged five, daughter of Basavaraj and
Balamma who lived in Jai Maruthinagar in
Bangalore, was playing in the narrow free space
spared by so many parked cars in front of her
house. It is natural that Sindhu was playing with
her other 5-year-old friends unaware of her
impending death by the car that suddenly
reversed and hit her. She fell on the ground hitting
her head on the pavement. She was taken to a
hospital where she was declared dead on arrival,
on Saturday, the 5th of June, 2008. The car which
was parked in front of the house did not belong to
Basavaraj or Balamma. Parking of vehicles in
front of the house leaves little space for children
to play, or for pedestrians to walk through.
There should be very severe punishment including
death penalty to those drivers who reverse their
car and knock down children and cause injury or
death.
