July 31, 2019 |

According to official data, three persons get killed and twenty-five sustain injuries in road accidents on a daily basis in the state. Shockingly 3595 persons have lost their lives in 19444 road accidents during the past three years. The same period 28,246 persons sustained injuries. The data further reveals that total of 6142 accident cases were registered, claiming 1029 lives besides leaving 8945 injured. Moreover a total of 6665 accidents were reported claiming 1140 lives and injuring 10092 persons, a total of 6637 cases were reported, claimed 1426 lives and injuring 9209. The data makes clear that the road accidents have claimed more lives than militancy especially in the past three years. The traffic police blame rash driving, overloading and violation of other traffic rules for the accidents. Most of the road accident victims are college and school going youth bikers, who seldom reduce their speed even on bad road stretches. A top official of the concerned department while expressing his helplessness sought cooperation from the civil society to curb the growing menace. Yes, the traffic police alone cannot do much. All have to rise to the occasion to save precious lives. It has been reliably learnt that driving licenses are easily available in the RTO office in lieu of some consideration. This has to be checked. Licenses should be issued to persons who qualify the criterion fixed by the experts. And before issuing licenses, the candidate must be made aware of traffic rules. This must be followed by a total ban on purchase of new vehicles for five years. Thanks to car loans offered by the banks, owning a car has now become very easy. The increasing number of vehicles on the state roads is in no way an indicator of development. It reflects the shortcomings in the government policy. Unless the state has the roads to cater to the growing traffic, the purchase of new vehicles should be banned. The civil society has a vital role to play. It can raise its voice against overloading and parking of vehicles on busy roads. The concerned department also needs to upgrade its infrastructure. By installing cameras at various places, over speeding and other traffic violations can be checked to a great extent. This is how the developed countries regulate the traffic. The primitive tools cannot make the roads safe. There has to be some modernization and up gradation of the system.
