There is a need to implement a strong tracking and security system on roads of Makkah, Riyadh and Jeddah in order to ensure security of residents.
In such a modernized world those who are responsible for these incidents should be taken in consideration and should be duly punished. It may create a sense of awareness among public. The traffic authorities have taken notice of such crucial accident and new policies have been defined. Still it seems that the resolution of this issue is a challenging task for authorities as number of accidents have not lessen to significant extent.
