Increased accidents


We all know with out the transporting the world will not rotate. The reason for this is: revolution of transports. Like the development of transport, the accidents also raised ten times. Some years back the youth in Villages and Cities used cycle’s more, but now the motorcycle is changed as the youth’s favorite vehicles. Like this the office going people and some industrialist using the Motorcycles and Car’s for there comfort. Now a days the transport vehicle are used as a decorating object of there house. Because of this, we see over crowded to accidents are the main events on the road every day. The government and some Non-government organizations are involving in awareness in public to follow the traffic rules, and further they are pressing to wear Helmet while driving motorcycles. But many people or not obey the rules. Recently I have seen some young people are not wearing Helmets, some have removed there side mirrors and shorted there hand bar, because of this, they are loosing there balance and cant see the vehicle coming on there side and caught in the accidents.

Except this there are many accidents occur on the people’s innocent. So we should put an end to our innocent things. For Example, on the no-moon day (amavasai) and on some festival days the roadside shops and street shops and some companies broke pumpkins on road to clear there bad things, so the vehicle which are passing on the same road used to travel on the pumpkins after a short time the vehicle skid on the road and face an accident. Mostly the people who travel on motorcycle and by-cycles get more struggles. Except this there will be a person who traveling on his motorcycle, at the same time his friend will pass on his by-cycle, after seeing his friend, the motorcycle guy like to help his friend, so he will take him on his bike, and his friend who is sitting on his back will hold his by-cycle on one hand and travel contemptibly. We can see this incident many on the road (mainly in India), that time if any prevention or electric post comes, one he will leave the cycle, if he leave the cycle it will fall on the vehicle which is coming back or they will dash on the prevention and get hurt.

In motorcycle only two people should travel, sometimes only two person will travel, in this the person who is sitting on his back will carry an object or some board, and enclosure the road, because of this the person travel from back, can’t see what vehicle is coming in front. Except this in every vehicle the government has put rules how many person should travel, but we can see many people on road, carrying lot of persons in there vehicle. So now days the accident is an ordinary incidents in road, because of this there is not only loss of things, but also the life. If the accident occur on unavoidable situation its ok. The reasons which I told here are held by our careless. The count of accident are increased in this present times, in this the big reason for accidents is the people’s innocent. (This week at least 10 person have died in accident (in Chennai), most of them are hit on there head). To avoid the accidents we should find a good solution and spread it to public.

Some youth’s in Chennai have recently organized a demonstration and act and show the public, how the accidents occur and also captured the shots in camera and conducted an exhibition in Chennai to show there photo’s and explain how to avoid the accidents and also conducted an awareness with the help of some Non-government organization. U can see some photo’s here which was took by the youths. They have taken an exertion and risk to aware our people, we should really appreciate our generation youths for there care on our people. I forget to tell one thing, now a days non matured (below 18) student are driving the bikes in high speed, so they skid and get hurt, so the guys below 18 should avoid driving bikes, because they don’t have practice, to control the vehicle in some critical situations . Why am I telling means, last week my brother also skids and wound in his hands, he is also below 18.

hi jeev,
a very good article. u r right abt the youth driving very fast on roads. i think the elders have equal responsibility, they should give their bikes to children under age. and also school and college students must be given driving lessons and be taught abt the importance of wearing helmets.

Aruna – Thanks. Not only in Chennai, many cities in India face the same.

Keshi – when we driving our mind and brain should be only on driving, if it get disturbed sure it will be finish in accidents. On no-moon days the Pumpkin’s are big enemy for vehicles.

Veda – Thanks:) “”they should give their bikes to children under age”” I think u have forget to write they should “not” give their bikes…. Your are right, the school should help them to learn about traffic rules.

Awakening – Me too hope, Thanks da.
