Safety must be our priority in our life. When we leave our home in early morning for an office, we never know that we will return back home safely because of unusual road accidents that are happening in day today life. In the everyday news we hear so many accidents that took the life of the people and some accidents will be due to the minor faults but still people have to pay for it by dying or by getting severely injured.
When I hear about all these accidents or injuries. First thing I can remember is my grandfather . We never knew that, a small fault of the auto rickshaw driver could take a life of our grandfather. This is something still unbelievable. Anyways whatever had to happen will happen, nobody can stop for it but still we can work on the safety and give our full support to overcome the problems of accident.
Now the question is how we can overcome the problem of accident? Here are some factors which will really help in our safety.
1. Raise the voice against damages of Road
Roads are the main factor for any safety driving. Because the damaged roads can be the reason for any brutal accidents. As a responsible drivers or motorcyclists or pedestrians should fight against the damages of the road and should raise our voice to get the road repaired
2. Avoid mobiles while driving
Never talk on phone when you’re driving. This can distress your mind while driving and accident can happen.
3. Never drink and drive
Avoid drinking and driving. Never drink before you drive. When ever you know that you need to return home alone after the party . Then do not drink. If in case you have a helping hand, take the help of them but never take the risk.
4. Practice of the seat belts
Wearing the seat belts must be made compulsory. Also seat belts for all the co passengers must be made compulsory too.
5. Avoid headphones in traffic zones
Wearing headphones can be dangerous in the traffic zones. If you wear the headphones, you will not hear any signals of the vehicles that you need to escape from.
6. Realizing the speed limit.
I notice some boys, when they get new bike or car. They get over excited and try to show off by increasing the speed limit or by making some sort of stupidity stunts. These acts can be more dangerous to their life.
7. Practice of vehicle indicator.
People still do not know how to use the indicator. I see many drivers, they just turn the steering without any indication. Do they require so much of strength just to press the button and give a prior signal? Everyone should make a practice of indicators wherever there is needed, so that other vehicles or pedestrian can get alert about your moves of the vehicle.
