Accidents in big cities is a common phenomenon. Unfortunately, hardly anyone comes to the rescue of road victims because of fear of harassment by the police. Now that the Supreme Court has issued guidelines that people who take road victims to a hospital will not be questioned or detained, there is no reason why bystanders / passersby should hesitate to help road victims and thus, discharge their duty as responsible citizens. Write a letter in 100-120 words to the editor of a national daily requesting him to make people aware of Supreme Court guidelines and urge them to help people in distress.

Subject: Help accident victims
I shall be obliged if you allow me a little space in the column of your esteemed newspaper to voice my concern over the unattended accident victims.
Accidents in big cities are now becoming a common phenomenon. Sadly, most passers-by do not come forward to help the accident victims. They have their own fears, mainly the fear of police harassment. But now the Supreme Court has issued guidelines that people who take road victims to a hospital will not be questioned or detained. So now the by-standers should not hesitate to discharge their duty as responsible citizens. Now they can help people in distress and be an example of a good citizen.
A powerful editorial from your pen, will go a long way in creating awareness among people and urging them to help the road victims.
