Government should make driving lessons compulsory in school
Imagine our country having no traffic problems, sounds good but a distant dream. How does our country meet the challenging vows of ever increasing traffic with its exhausted infrastructure? I wonder by making schools/colleges responsible to teach our new generation this essential discipline may solve the daunting task we all face. Government should make theory of driving test a part of syllabus in Class 11/12 and practical test while in college. Only drivers who pass the stringent test should be given licenses. For heavygoods vehicles same rules apply with different level of coaching skills. Government should make compulsory for all the existing drivers to take tests in a stipulated time period. Strong insurance laws like party who is the cause of an accident pays for the damage to the third party can help curb traffic in a big way. Automatic issue of fines when people jump red lights with penalty points on the license. Replace the zebra crossing with pelican crossings. To avoid overtaking from left side, trucks and buses should be discouraged to drive in right lanes.
