Subject: Rash and Reckless Driving by the People
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the general public and the concerned authorities about the rash and reckless driving by the people in our city.
The fast moving trucks, buses, scooters, bikes, etc. have become a menace to the people of this area, especially the bike riders, who, it seems, neither care for their own lives nor others. The news about the road accidents caused due to rash driving is common these days.
There have been many cases of road rage and hit and run incidents, which pose danger to the pedestrians especially the poor, homeless people who sleep on the pavements.
As someone who feels victimised by the reckless driving, I feel that there should be better policing. Besides implementing stricter traffic rules, honest and vigilant officers should be appointed so as to keep a check on chaos and raging drivers on the road. Corrupt officers indulging in giving and receiving bribes should be suspended immediately.
Enforcing speed limits within the city is necessary and so is stricter norms for issue of license. Therefore, whoever violates the rules, must be fined heavily.
The problem can be easily dealt with by spreading awareness about the issue as much as possible and also by taking timely action. Hence, I wish the authorities make a note of the situation and act upon it immediately.
Looking forward to see positive changes.
