Everyday people die on the roads due to reckless driving, speeding, etc and we blame the government for failing to provide good roads. But as responsible citizens, we can make the roads safer for all by simply following some basic traffic rules.
PEOPLE HOLD the government responsible for all the problems in the society ranging from corruption to inflation, poor health system, deteriorating educational system, etc. We even blame the government for frequent road accidents. We always complain that the government has failed to provide good roads, the police is only interested in issuing challans and no safety measures are adopted by the government and the list goes on.
Agreed. The government is heartless, clueless about our problems but as responsible citizens what is our role? Don’t we give our children driving lesson at the age of 14? Don’t we wear helmet at the sight of a policeman? Don’t we fasten our safety belts at the sight of policemen? Don’t we jump the red light when there is no policemen? Don’t we take dangerous shortcuts to save fuel.
The list seem endless. For every 20,000 people there is one traffic policeman. Is it the duty of that one policeman to do everything and the rest 20,000 will do nothing but simply obey him, provided if he is there.
Traffic rules are for us, and not for the policemen. We have to obey these rules, we have to save our lives and the lives of others. We just can’t blame the government for everything. Your life is precious, don’t lose it just to gain a minute.
Take care, it is your life.
