    Kill the speed or get killed by it

    These days roads are very good. Not only highways but also state highways as well as internal roads are very good. These facilities should be used by the public properly. This infrastructure is being created for attracting foreign investment and employment creation.
    But unfortunately, many of the people are misusing the facility and trying to go at a very high speed. This speed is causing many accidents and many people are getting injured or getting killed.
    Especially many youths are getting killed because of this speed.
    All the parents and elders should advise these young people to be more careful. One should kill the speed. Otherwise, they will get killed.

    Yes, this is sad people dont drive vehicle as per maximum and minimum speed limit decided. Many of the youths try to show adventure but they forget that this is dangerous and many of the youths get injured or killed while doing such adventures.

    Recently a boy was killed in Delhi as he was racing on the road at night. It was a was news. His parents were repenting why they brought him a new bike

    People should understand that overseeing is always dangerous. We should at least think of our parents or kids while doing stunts on the roads.

    Unfortunately, today's youth hardly follows any rule. They are extremely ambitious and very energetic. They always love to be in top gear and not afraid of any danger. When an adventure turns fatal, then the youths try to understand the ground reality. Usually, a late realisation proves to be fatal. If the youths follow the rules properly, then many lives can be saved.

    The young age is like that. They want to take all types of risks and adventures. They sometimes take inspirations from fictional roles in books and movies like spiderman, phantom and Shaktimaan.

    These youngsters are taking pride in doing such daredevil acts and sometimes even inspired by their parents, friends or relatives some of whom are rash drivers.

    So lacunae is in the society and our educational system that we are not training and bringing up them in a proper way. If these children are sternly dealt by the authorities, they will be fearful to do so.

    Same boy when he goes abroad and gets driving opportunity, does not drive fast as he very well knows that the punishments are severe.

    Knowledge is power.

    All of us know this. In every metro city, we read many slogans about the perils of high-speed driving and drunk driving. Many a time, these two offences are committed by the same person. Every year we read about many ghastly accidents due to high-speed driving. But even then, some of us continue to drive at high speed bringing death and misery to some.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    yes, nowadays, youths are in high speed driving. They are not at all ready take advice from the elders. I can see the teenagers wear headphones and listen music while they ride their bike in heavy traffic areas. This is very dangerous.

    Young or grown ups, all are choosing this dangerous path of high speed driving voluntarily.

    The thrill and fun of this activity is much more important for them then their own or the fellow traveller's life.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    Among a serious concern of road rage which is now easy to witness of even in a heavy traffic but not an easy task to educate the young of the controlled driving. Once it happened that the biker was about to get beneath the tire of a bus but the biker was lucky to be safe as the bus driver controlled the brake & the bus was stopped at once or else the biker would have been killed but beyond expectation of the passerby the biker stood-up again & moved the gear to its maximum & escaped.

    What could we expect from such bikers because they are like unstoppable with no intentions of learning the outcomes which may even take their lives but hope so that the time they realizes so would have no meaning for them.

    My office in on a national high way. Rightly said in the post the roads nowadays are very good even the roads to the village has no exception. With this good roads, we have a responsibility to drive safely not only for oneself but also for others. But this sense of responsibility seems very rare among most of the citizen running on the road from small ward road to the national highway. I saw 2 to 3 accident in a period of 2 months!!! When I imagine about the national figure of the accident. It scared me. A large-scale awareness is necessary. An accident not only cost to life. It leads to financial, emotional and loss to the family.

    So the call from the member to Drive safely of every road is necessary. Maintaining our speed on the road is a way to avoid accident to oneself and others.
