DO YOU THINK YOUNG PEO­PLE TEND TO SPEED EX­CES­SIVELY MORE OF­TEN THAN OLDER DRIV­ERS ON OUR ROADS? IF SO, HOW CAN THIS BE CON­TROLLED?

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Ja­mal al Hadi Di­rec­tor of me­dia Youth have a ten­dency to drive fast. This can be con­trolled by tak­ing sev­eral steps. Traf­fic-re­lated ed­u­ca­tion should be­gin at school and home. The young should be asked as to why they love speed­ing and at the same time be taught about the neg­a­tive ef­fects of speed­ing. The ROP should also spread aware­ness via all me­dia chan­nels.

Mo­hammed al Farsi Stu­dent Yes, young peo­ple tend to drive fast. This can be con­trolled by cre­at­ing more aware­ness about the dan­gers of speed­ing. Both the au­thor­i­ties and par­ents should work to­gether to spread the mes­sage to the youth about the dan­gers of speed­ing. One wise word of cau­tion can save their lives.

Mo­ham­mad Zo­haib Char­tered ac­coun­tant No law can de­ter the young­sters from speed­ing. In­stead, if they are taught in schools about the neg­a­tive ef­fects of speed­ing like ac­ci­dents, then it might help. Oman has world­class roads which tempt many to speed. Even the older driv­ers speed but not as much as the youth.

Asad Butt Leas­ing ex­ec­u­tive

Bring­ing down the speed lim­its can­not help in de­ter­ring young­sters from speed­ing. There are many other ways that ROP can ex­er­cise to achieve that goal. There should be aware­ness ses­sions in schools.

An­war Ab­dul­lah Busi­ness­man Def­i­nitely, they do. Although speed cam­eras are al­most ev­ery­where, I still feel fur­ther steps need to be ini­ti­ated to avoid road ac­ci­dents. Since, it is dif­fi­cult to con­trol their driv­ing habits, ex­perts can hold classes on safe driv­ing prac­tices.
