Equal pri­or­ity to all road users

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - OPINION/EDUCATION - Deep Kan­wal Manchanda,

Road safety is very im­por­tant if we want to save in­valu­able lives. Speed lim­its should be fixed and this rule should be strictly en­forced through in­stal­la­tion of speed cam­eras. Pedes­trian bar­ri­ers and cross­ings should be made for safety of pedes­tri­ans. Side­walks of suit­able size should be built. Road signs and cross­ings should be made of retro-re­flec­tive ma­te­rial. Shared space schemes should be there for pro­vid­ing equal pri­or­ity to all road users. Cy­cle lanes should also be there as cy­clists are most vul­ner­a­ble tar­gets. Driv­ers should be gen­uinely tested be­fore giv­ing li­cence and safe roads should be de­signed. Hel­mets use should be en­cour­aged.
