Traffic police should get serious
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.
