I read in daily news paper two luxury buses are collapsed to each other and both are destroyed with fire. Even single body cant identify all bodies are destroyed and this accident are occured in the mid night 3 O'clock. Tow luxury buses one is going to the Pune and second one is coming from the Pune crashed both the buses and all passengers. The bus driver may be close the eyes for few minutes but all persons life are gone. I think most of the Indian people familiar with this news. What you think late night traveling from buses is good. Both buses are fully destroyed. Read full news here not my article or referral link http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2011-11-30/pune/30458305_1_private-buses-bus-accident-mehkar

very sad that there was an accident like the one you have referred. Mostly it would have happened due to the drivers losing concentration on account of lack of sleep. Transport corporations are responsible because they tax the drivers too much. Thousands of drivers are there without employment and a few are being taxed more than their capacity. I avoid travelling by bus/car during late nights.

Driving at night isn't a bad thing. Some even prefer to drive at night since there's no traffic. However to avoid any accidents, certain things should be taken into consideration. Firstly, the driver should have good eyesight and it's very important that the vehicle is 100 % in tip top shape. Most importantly, keep alert and awake the whole time. Drive with more care than usual and if tired, take a rest. If you keep these things in mind, everything is going to be fine. Happy driving y'all!

I think late night driving is as dangerous as it's not. It's advantage is that you have your peace on the road and there isn't that much traffic if there is traffic at all. On the other hand, when there's someone coming your way they blind you with their headlights and the worst thing is that you get very tired and bored, especially if you're driving alone and have no one to talk to, you can easily get sleepy and even fall asleep, and that's when accidents happen. It's sad that there are so many accidents and so many lives are lost due to traffic accidents.

More peace is also not good for life. In the mid night everywhere only darkness so how can drive the vehicle driver then accidents occurred.

I just remembered another dangerous thing in mid night driving. Those silly animals that choose to run over the road just at the time you're passing by. I almost hit a rabbit last night when I was driving. Good luck he was faster than me. Poor animals

Driving in the midnight is nothing wrong and only if you are sleepy in the middle of the night and driving is not good for you..so if traveling ,planing to drive in the night,should sleep in a day,or not drink too.

You are right till 1 O'clock is not bad but after 1 O'clock at least 3 hours sleeping is necessary. In the mid night is danger for driver and passengers both.

Some accidents happen during night time. It is because it is already dark. When it is night time, drivers think they are the king of the road. They don't know that there are still others who are still driving. They drive in high speed. One bad thing, most are drunk.

You are right most of the accidents are occurred in night time. So people should avoid the night traveling.

Midnight ride I think is not good but sometimes you just have to. there are many people who work in such and they must comply. I think there is another serious problem and it is not drive drunk because it also leads to accidents is not always crashes are of this type but in most cases this is the reason. so you just have to be careful on the road and behind the wheel. nice day!

Hi there fantabulus! I think it depends on the driver, before driving, it is his/her responsibility to be always ready and awake especially if he's gonna drive at night. Whenever we need to travel out of the city, we always take a night trip, because it's faster than travelling in the morning.. There are actually different ways that are taught to bus drivers for them to be able to be awake all the time. No.1, turn the air-conditioning on, that's why in most buses, it's always cold, because cool temperature makes drivers awake. No.2, you can turn on the radio but don't play any lullaby songs of course, lol... These are all my experience from driving, and it's always taught before getting your first driver license. Have a nice day!

Any driver may sleep at night time because that time is sleeping time even for few second if he sleeps then accident may occurred.

it was really a shocking news and i feel so bad about people who lost their life. at night, travelling gets harder as you can not view the roads properly.and our clock is set in a way that we feel more sleepy at night and slightest of distraction can result in disaster.

Driving at night is especially dangerous. There are some people who working at night and have to driving at night, but there are also some people, especially young men they go out at night to drive at very high speed just for fun. Actually, so many accident happened because of high speed. I think we should be very careful and cherish our life.

There will be times where people might have to drive at night. However, only the most skilled drivers should do so. There are many people who are on shaky grounds when driving during the day. Therefore, those people who are really going to drive at night, they are really not going to really be the best people and there are a lot of hazards at night that don't exist during the day. People think that they are a lot better at driving than they really are more often than not. I think that you really do have to be the best of the best, when you are driving in the dark of the night. I know where I live, all of the insanity is coming out at night. I would really not want to be on the road for even the slightest of seconds. It just too much of a risk.
