Sub: Increase in road accidents in metros
Through the column of your esteemed newspaper, kindly allow me to express my great concern and anxiety at the increase in road accidents in the metropolitan cities of India.
It is quite disturbing that over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the number of people killed in road accidents in our country. In the year 2013, 2014 and 2015, 137,000, 139,671 and 146,000 people died respectively in road accidents in India. Most of these accidents were caused by rash and negligent driving. Drinking and driving have become quite a common feature.
The rules of road safety and caution are thrown to the winds. The concerned authorities must give exemplary punishments to the rash and negligent drivers. Drinking and driving can’t go together. The defaulters must be heavily fined or punished. The traffic police must enforce the rules and culture of the road very strictly. Only then our roads will be safe and secure.
