Our metropolitan cities witness a large number of accidents every day. What do you think is the reason? What can be done to bring down the rate of accidents? Write a letter in 100-120 words to the editor of a national daily expressing your concerns and offering solutions to this problem. You are Arun/Aruna, 112 Model Town, Delhi.

Through the columns of your widely read daily, I would like to draw the attention of the authorities concerned to the increasing number of accidents on the roads in our metropolitan cities. Not a single day passes when we donot read in the newspaper or watch on televisions about the countless number of accidents taking place every day.
It all brings to light the glaring fact that either the vehicle owners are minors, or rash drivers or are in inebriated state, etc. With scant regard for law, they disobey traffic rules and are often found talking on cell phones which can cause distraction and lead to accidents.
Humans lives are precious. The traffic police need to deal with the offenders promptly and strictly. Stringent traffic rules should be enforced and penalties should be levied so as to act as deterrents.
