Respect the pedestrians and follow road decorumPedestrians are the people who walk beside the road and traverse their path by walking alone. These are the people who are vulnerable to everyday road accidents. This involves the cyclists too. The people driving the cars and bikes or scooty need to understand that roadside is meant for pedestrians. They need equal respect.
Most of the accidents happening every day in our country involves a majority of pedestrians. The reason behind such accidents is people do not follow the traffic rules and the rules of driving on road. People continuously keep pressing horns that causes too much of noise pollution and does not even help in reducing the traffic. Nobody follows the proper lane.
In metropolitan cities, there is no proper lane for pedestrians to walk their way. So, they come in between the traffic at times, which causes a nuisance on the road. Roads are being developed at a higher pace without proper understanding of how to manage these roads and traffic. There is lack of administration in our country, the public does not follow the traffic and road standards, which causes unnecessary problems.
There have to be appropriate measures to run the traffic. Also, the government should start a campaign to make people aware of the rights of pedestrians. They have the right of way much before the people riding in a vehicle. In fact, whenever we see a pedestrian, it's our duty to stop our car or bike and let them cross the road first.
Let us be more civilized human beings.
