Safety on roads

0 22

Dear Editor,
The rate of deaths by accidents on roads in India is the highest in the world. Some 14 lakh persons die every year. The new Road Transport and Safety Act 2014 will hopefully help overcome all sorts of problems faced by road users across the country. But the enactment alone is not enough.
Driving licences should be issued only after strict driving tests. The tragedy in India is that wards of rich people get licences without any test or by throwing money on the licencing authorities’ face. Even a truck cleaner gets a driving licence by bribing the official concerned without undergoing any practical/physical test. Unless the authorities concerned change their corrupt mentality, there is not going to be any effective change in our traffic system.
