    Default In memory of Imran R1

    Salaam,

    After reading about the death of a member of this forum due to a bike accident, I have decided that, if the moderators will allow , I would like to raffle off 12 (1 each month for next 12 months, if I have more money I will try to double this amount) motorcycle helmets for the members here who cannot afford these.

    Moderators,
    If possible these should be given to people who are unable to afford these. I understand that this is an arduous task and I thank you for your help in advance.

    Sammy

    its a good gesture but we should educate our friends and relatives if they are not using helmets. I think whoever buys a motorcycle, can also afford helmets but we Pakistanis are dis-illusioned that nothing can happen to us. Almost all new cars have seatbelts but we know how many of us use them daily. We should be a bit sensible and take safety measures seriously. Accidents are always beyond ur control and are unpredicted otherwise there would have been no accidents at all.

    @All Pakwheeler Bikers
    Plz use ur helmets, it saves.

    Good intiative but the real issue is compliance...all cars apart from mehran come with seat belts but how many ppl on the streets in pakistan actually where them???

    drivers and riders education is must....i've seen 13 year old children driving cars...its not their fault...its the fault of their elders who let them...driving education is the responsibility of parents and elders...we should start from them

    Guys, i cannot help those who do not need it. This is how things start, may be tomorrow this effort will gain popularity and snowball into some thing bigger. I was very dissapointed to read about the death of Imran ( I donot personaly know him) but instead of pointing out the obvious mistake on the departed's part, I would like to do some thing about it.
    Please bothers dont be frustrated with each other so much that you give up. Our people will always be our people and if we can save one life that is worth the effort.

    So please I kindly request that we all look at the bright side of this, may be some one will live a day longer because we all did some thing about it.

    I know you guys will hate it when I say this , but journey of a thousand miles. begins with one step.

    I suggest that 'WE' at pakwheels arrange road safety and defensive driving workshops instead of having meets about pimping our rides to get the most out of the tiny dispalcement and no safety designs that we get here. Insead of raffling off helmets for everyone,they should be raffled only among the participants of such gatherings as participation in such events may imply that these ppl actually put some value on their lives.

    bluntknife,

    Do what you will, I am with you, just start something, I live in US and cannot go there and do any thing. I can provide these items and other things that you guys may need to get started.
    Just please start some thing, I know that you guys are smart and will come up with the right idea.

    @bluntknife

    agree with ur idea about road safety workshop...pakwheels should take this step and tell ppl about the road hazards and their best defense...it will be a good step i say...dont know about other ppl who are mostly worried about what mods are in that car...what rims are in that?

    I take this opportunity to ask the mods to make a new forum about road safety/defensive driving...i know theres information spread here and there on pakwheels on such stuff but having it organized at one place will help our cause and would pave the way for actually having such workshops in different cities.

    As i made the above post i realized that a lot of new threads about safety are coming primarily as a knee jerk reponse to the sad incident that happened to imran. I urge again that this very useful information should be organized into a separate category.

    Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
