There are quite a number of young reckless or drunkard drivers who speed and drift on the roads and drive/ride like there's no tomorrow - contributing to motor vehicle accidents(MVA) on the roads, increasing the number of morbidity and mortality. This is especially evident on late friday nights or saturday nights or festival eves.
These people, in my humble opinion.. if they met with accident ~ it's really what they deserved (or what we used to say as "padan muka" cos "they asked for it"). If they don't treasure their lives, what else do they expect?? They won't be lucky all the time. If they can be saved on the first time, No guarantee that they can be saved on the second or third time as well, cos all these depends on the severity of the injuries, especially if there is intracranial injury or head injury, then the prognosis is changed... Some people just never learnt their lessons.. till it is too late.
I have seen several young guy patients who are involved with motor vehicle accidents several times.. and suffering fractures at different sites each time. And in one of the case, this is the third time he involved in the accident. The first two times, he is lucky and survived, but he didn't learn the lesson. This time, he suffered severe head injuries with polytrauma with very poor outcome and graved prognosis. Even if he survived, he will forever remain in the vegetative state and this is a burden to his family members.
I really pity those innocent victims who involved in the accidents because of other drivers' reckless behaviour.. And I pity the family members of those who are reckless in driving or racing on the road in the middle of the night and injured themselves - with permanent disabilities or get into coma or vegetative states. The family members have to take care of them for their whole lives till the day they succumbed . I have see too many cases like this. And we, who work in medical professions, have to resuscitate these sort of people and rescue them (cos we treat everyone equally). If they learnt their lessons, it is alright.. It is definitely not easy to manage a polytrauma case.
What I want to say is drive safetly on the road. We are not lucky all the time. When you are driving on the road, please do show some consideration to the other road users as well. Treasure your life and think of your loved ones at home.
