Traf­fic po­lice should get se­ri­ous

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - OPINION/EDUCATION - Amar Jeet Kumar,

The in­creas­ing ac­ci­dents on the roads show that traf­fic po­lice is lack­ing its con­trol to check vi­o­la­tors. There is no pro­vi­sion to con­duct a pe­ri­od­i­cal med­i­cal check-up to as­cer­tain the driv­ers' fit­ness. In tric­ity, the buses and truck driv­ers do not ob­serve traf­fic lights and are big traf­fic haz­ards. The cops on the cross­ings also do not check or chal­lan such vi­o­la­tors. The ca­sual at­ti­tude of traf­fic po­lice is re­spon­si­ble for many fa­tal ac­ci­dents. Peo­ple should also be self-dis­ci­plined to en­sure the road safety. Buses and au­tos car­ry­ing school­child­ren do not fol­low safety norms thus there are se­ri­ous and fa­tal road ac­ci­dents of school buses. There must be a proper check­ing and reg­u­la­tion of traf­fic dur­ing the peak hours and late nights. The pe­ri­od­i­cal med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion es­pe­cially, the eye­sight should be made manda­tory for the com­mer­cial driv­ers. The ha­bit­ual vi­o­la­tors' driv­ing li­censes should be can­celled.
