FAULTY SYSTEM

This refers to the tragic road accident of the school children on their way to Baba Reshi Sahab in which 52 were injured and two got killed. This incident brought back the memories of wullar tragedy in which many innocent school children lost their lives. Such kinds of incidents are on prowl these days and the credit goes to the drivers, traffic police and transport authorities. Drivers are to be blamed because they drive carelessly and with a terrific speed causing a lot of accidents each day. Traffic police is responsible because they do not deliver their duties properly. A lot of people are seen breaking traffic rules but they get away with it. Secondly we all witness minors driving bikes and cars. They get their drivers’ license without any trial. They roam here and there without being noticed and fined. They drive with one hand and answer their phone calls with other hand. The moot question is who issues driving licenses to them?? Accidents are on peak nowadays and lives are being lost each day. Every year government spends lacks of money on macdamizationon of roads but still no relief occurs in the occurrence of accidents. Recently I was on a trip to a village namely Sumbal, the roads were dilapidated to such extent that it spoilt my mood for the whole day. How horrible it would be for the local population there to carry out their daily business. I could figure it out that these dilapidated roads were the root cause of accidents. In order to secure our society from the monster of road accidents we need to repair our roads, pay extra attention to the traffic rules and above all drive slowly and safely.
