Slow ve­hi­cles dis­turb main traf­fic

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - OPINION/EDUCATION - Sukhdev Singh Min­has, as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor,

Nar­row roads and ever in­creas­ing flow of ve­hi­cles on the roads is the ma­jor cause for ac­ci­dents. Cy­cle riders, rick­shaw pullers and auto Rick­shaw driv­ers are the main cul­prits for the ma­jor­ity of the road ac­ci­dents. De­spite hav­ing sep­a­rate paths for slow mov­ing traf­fic, cy­cle and rick­shaw-pullers pre­fer to use the main roads. They sel­dom care for the traf­fic rules and no one chal­lans or pun­ish them. Most of the auto rick­shaw driv­ers drive rashly and put brakes when­ever they see any pas­sen­ger thus invit­ing ac­ci­dent and dis­turb­ing smooth flow of traf­fic. Most of the traf­fic vi­o­la­tions can be ob­served in morn­ing hours when schools open. Putting more traf­fic-po­lice per­son­als on duty in the morn­ing hours is the need of the hour to curb the prac­tice of un­der­age and rash driv­ing by the stu­dents and as well as school Buses.
