Three main rea­sons

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - OPINION/EDUCATION - MPS Chadha,

The chaotic road sce­nario in the City Beau­ti­ful, re­sult­ing in ever-in­creas­ing ac­ci­dents, is pri­mar­ily due to three main rea­sons, firstly the roads lay­out is not con­ducive/ef­fec­tive to cope with too mod­ernised cars/ve­hi­cles, se­condly the im­ma­tu­rity of public driv­ing such ve­hi­cles and thirdly lack of vi­sion amongst traf­fic en­force­ment staff. On ob­serv­ing no traf­fic en­force­ment staff around, the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple skip rules and reg­u­la­tions. Ab­sence of at­ten­tion and sin­cer­ity amongst traf­fic po­lice is ag­gra­vat­ing the road mishaps dearly. In­cul­ca­tion of safe driv­ing spir­its amongst public is more im­por­tant than mere chal­lan­ing. There is no check on high speed, high­beam lights, wrong over-tak­ings, zig-zag trou­ble­some driv­ing on busy city roads, smok­ing and mo­bile lis­ten­ing dur­ing driv­ing or nui­sance cre­ated by VIP es­cort ve­hi­cles, which of­ten re­sult in fa­tal ac­ci­dents.
