Re­duce use of cars

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - OPINION/EDUCATION - TR Goyal,

Ris­ing num­ber of road ac­ci­dents in last years, is a mat­ter of se­ri­ous con­cern and ma­jor­ity of these re­late to car mishaps. Main rea­son of road ac­ci­dents is con­ges­tion of cars, the quan­tity of which per­haps, is the high­est in the world. Ev­ery­one suf­fer­ing from false pres­tige and ego wants to travel in his own car. They think it be­low dig­nity to travel or go to work in public trans­port or share accommodation. Un­less the cit­i­zens are asked to re­duce the us­age of cars, the prob­lem can­not be solved. They should be mo­ti­vated to make use of public trans­port. It should be strength­ened and made pop­u­lar to share car accommodation with oth­ers in the lo­cal­ity. To make roads safer, the ad­min­is­tra­tion should con­struct un­der­passes at strate­gic cross­ings to min­i­mize traf­fic chaos.
