Please be serious on road accident
- Imphal Times Editorial :: April 19 2017 -



The dead of a school going girl in road accident is a serious matter.

Deaths of hundreds across the state in road accidents this month call for dealing with the issue on a war footing.

The frequency of accidents in the state has become a cause of great concern.

Traffic accidents are a significant cause of any disability, death and economic ruin for families in the state.

If not every day he state witness people getting killed and maimed on our roads.

It is a given fact that a number of people who go out of home for different reasons do so with the knowledge that some will never return because of traffic accidents.

The main reasons for road accidents include poor vehicle condition, ignoring traffic rules and instruction marks on roads, signal breaking as well as speeding, use of mobile phone while driving, wrong overtaking, use of drug, wrong parking, overloading and bad road condition, etc.

And above this insincerity of those government machineries in rendering their service.

It is unfortunate that ‘the probe’ order by the state government on the installation of CCTV and Electric Traffic signal has been extended for another month, when they could have completed within the given stipulated time.

The number of traffic accidents can only be reduced if an attempt is made to understand their causes.

First, there needs to be properly designed roads and even traffic signs. If either of these is not up to standard, it could be cause for a traffic accident.

Of course, the primary reason for traffic accidents is fast and rash driving but that can be checked by vigilant policing.

In addition to that, vehicles need to meet the necessary international fitness and road safety standards.

Thought also needs to be given for protecting the infrastructure that one finds along roads, since it can be prone to accidents.

Drivers should be punished on a system based on points where beyond a certain number of violations, they lose their licence to drive for a fixed period of time.

As for the traffic police, they need to be trained better and should be efficient at not only managing the flow of traffic but also in fining those who break traffic laws.

There is also a dire need for a system where there is prompt reporting of traffic accidents so that emergency services can reach in as short a time as possible.
