Awareness of Driving and Road Safety Rules
Death of children between the age group of 12 and 15 due to careless driving is common news. Such news is indeed scary and heart-rending. Lack of awareness and realisation is the root of this problem. The need of the hour is to take proactive steps to nip this issue in the bud.
One of the proactive steps may be to conduct intensive awareness campaigns and workshops to sensitise school children about the driving laws and road-safety rules. Records show that such programs have been both thought and action-stimulant.
It is an undeniable truth that only realisation can prompt a change in behaviour. Therefore, it is crucial that the school children realise the mammoth importance of following the driving laws and traffic rules. One must also not forget that the target age group is the teenage and the children in this age group are stubborn and sensitive. They should be dealt with carefully.
The campaigns should apprise children of the legal age of driving and the permissible speed limit. They should also know the other major road safety rules like wearing helmet.
Road safety is very important nowadays as there has been too much increase in vehicles on road and it becomes crucial that we follow the traffic rules and laws and save ourselves and our families from road accidents. A unison effort from each and everyone could definitely reduce the number of accidents and make our roads safer.
