My pt is not against "letting them go". its more about letting them go alone at "night" and when they "driving on their own". had it been some other mode of transport like a bus it would have been better.
I don't think it is such a big deal. If you can drive good, age doesn't matter. Ironically, it is better at night because you are gonna encounter lower traffic than day time. But still, what's the problem in going out at night? They were in a group, not alone. And the same thing can be said about anything. Accidents can happen in any mode of transportation. So, should we stop going out of our homes?
@freethinker: a mishap can happen anywhere and at anytime..agreed!! but at night time probably the chances are more. in the day time one can cry out for help but at night time its difficult to get immediate help. eg if one meets with an accident one can call for help, ask for lift to the hosp or anything but at night things are different. that's why it gets scary.
however my point is not "going out". my brother is also allowed to go for night stays and on trips but then he goes with a big group and moreover my parents continously remain in touch with him and are worried till he comes home safely. but here mandira was not perturbed even one bit yaar. she was so confident that anything bad can ever happen. if udi's mom knew about his trip she could have told him to stay in some hotel or lodge over night n travel the next day to be on a little safer side.
