Road accidents are on the rise. People do not follow traffic rules and register false cases, too. It is mandatory for the two wheeler drivers to wear helmets and four wheeler drivers are suppose to wear seat belts. Of course, a valid driving license is a must. Jaipur SP Rameshwar Singh in a Community Liasion Group(CLG) meeting said that driving licenses will be cancelled for all those not following these mandatory rules.
He also said that in the last month strict actions have been taken against 124 people in Jaipur in the cases of drunken driving and 50 licenses have been cancelled. Out of the 69 people who reported fake incidents and registered false cases, 26 have been sent to jail. Action will be taken against all who do not follow traffic rules.
The same steps need to be taken in all cities as accidental cases are on a rise where most of the deaths happen due to head injury. It is a common sight in town that 2 wheeler drivers do not wear helmets and try to take short cuts in order to escape being caught. Four wheeler drivers are also careless enough in avoiding seat belts which causes chest injury since the sudden jerk while applying brakes makes them dash onto the steering.
Udaipur traffic is growing day by day. In spite of holding ‘road-safety week’ to promote safe driving, people are still seen moving around without helmets and seat belts. Helmets are all the more important since a fall results in the head being hit first. In the past few years, it has been observed that if the traffic police caught any of these drivers not following traffic rules, they landed into trouble since the drivers became aggressive in their attitudes and even hit the traffic police.
(Apart from this, late night DJ music being played in wedding venues and even the ‘bhajan-sandhyas’ needs to be checked. A number of times, loud music is played as late as 1 a.m. disturbing sleep of the dwellers of that area and it also becomes difficult for the students to study during their examination time. The music is loud enough to be heard even at a great distance.)
Appeals have constantly been made through social media regarding road safety rules. Using helmet has been regularly emphasised upon, but public is still careless. What harm would it do in wearing helmets? Are the people not worried about their own safety, their families’ safety? Do they not think even once that they have dependants back home? These are the regular questions to which people nod in affirmation that they are aware of road safety rules but how many follow?
If we go and check on the road, out of the first 10 people we see, only 2 might be seen wearing helmets. Rest all too happy to drive unnoticed by the police. May God be with them.
