Drunken driving a major problem
Now a days, more people die of accidents on roads than of any diseases. Some of the accidents are because of mechanical failure of vehicles. But in most cases the fault lies with who drives these vehicles. There are many causes of or road accidents but a major cause is drunken driving, which needs to be tackled on priority. Strict enforcement of traffic laws should be done with suitable penalty or fine or punishment. Road safety certainly depends on the users who obey traffic laws, but on the other hand, it is imperative to have manufacturers who provide safe vehicles and the authorities who provide safe roads. The reason for accidents is not always driver's error, but the lack of suitable and effective provisioning on the road itself. The government should plan to provide safety features in cars and speed governors be made compulsory on heavy vehicles. To monitor highway drivers, more traffic cops must be deployed to keep a check on rash drivers.
