Subject: Increase in Road Accidents
As a concerned citizen, I wish to draw your attention towards the increase in road accidents in the metropolitan cities of India. The roads, these days, have become a death-trap and no one feels safe.
Reckless and rash driving seems to be the root-cause behind these accidents. People are leading a mechanised life today and so are always in a hurry. No attention is paid to the speed-barriers or accident prone area-warnings. They are least worried about their safety or the traffic rules. Another cause of these accidents is the increase in the number of vehicles. The youth today want a vehicle of his own. Most of the reckless driving is done by youth who are reckless drivers.
Through the esteemed columns of your newspaper, I would like to appeal to the authorities to take necessary strict action against such youngsters or law violators. People should be made aware of traffic rules or the importance of speed-barriers, speed limits through public awareness programmes so that the city roads become a safe place for all those who use them.
