A PROAC­TIVE CIT­I­ZENRY IS A MUST FOR ROAD SAFETY

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - HTNATION -

This refers to ‘The Govern­ment must pri­ori­tise road safety’ (Karan Thapar, Oct 7). Mr Thapar rightly says that it is high time the govern­ment pays more at­ten­tion to the is­sue of road safety. While cross­ing roads, we all share the same feel­ing of fear that Mr Thapar has dis­cussed. The rea­son is ob­vi­ous -- In­dia wit­nesses the high­est num­ber of road ac­ci­dents in the world. But we must not put the en­tire blame on the govern­ment. It’s our duty to fol­low the rules and reg­u­la­tions. If we, as cit­i­zens, are not proac­tive, there is not much that govern­ment can do.

PRAKRITI SINGH,

The United Na­tions’ sec­re­tary-gen­eral, An­tónio Guter­res’s ob­ser­va­tion that all the mem­ber states should come for­ward to bol­ster the UN’S peace­keep­ing mis­sion car­ries weight (Sus­tain­able peace doesn’t come about by chance, Sept 7). This au­gurs well for In­dia, which is one of the top con­trib­u­tors to the UN’S peace­keep­ing mis­sions.
