Small children playing on roads: how to ensure their safety?Very often, we see very small children between two and four years old, innocently playing right in front of their houses, while their parents are immersed in TV serials. Oftentimes, the poor old grandmother would shout from wherever she is seated to a particular child, not to cross the road.
The children are always children. They play and for them to pick up a small ball from the middle of the road is all that they want. The rash and heartless two wheeler romeos who try to impress college girls, simply give these children a damn and drive so fast. Many children get hurt.
Who would ensure their safety? Why can't we have some sort of barricades, beyond which children cannot go to play? How about children-friendly parks, at least two kilometers away, where they can easily play whatever they want?
We, as citizens should do something about this. The question is : how?
