OF CITIZENS - COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION
challenge of making our roads safer can be met only with the whole hearted
support and commitment of the entire community. So what can we do to help as
a model road user- Learn the rules and follow them conscientiously even when
nobody is watching. Don't justify traffic violations by saying that you are
sure that they are 'safe'. Remember, you are inspiring others to violate law
and they may do so under not so safe circumstances.
others- anybody you can influence, your family, your friends or your
colleagues. The task of teaching the rules or road safety to a society as
diverse and heterogeneous as ours requires the dedicated support of
enlightened citizens. You can use your special gift for art or music or
theatre or technology for carrying the message of road safety to the
millions who need to be educated.
active citizens- Your enthusiasm can force even the most lethargic of
systems to move. Know the traffic problems and road safety issues of your
locality, your office, your child's school and so on. You must follow up on
the construction of that rotary or the installation of that traffic signal
that is needed in your locality. Your enthusiasm shall ensure that no
procedural bottle-necks hold up urgently needed engineering works.
expect the Government to do it all- The community has immense resources. It
can definitely raise internal funds for minor interventions like building a
wall to close a dangerous illegal entry point or engaging private manpower
to help in the regulation of parking in commercial areas or outside
help the accident victim - the fear of false implication in the matter is
totally irrational. You must be prepared to undertake the responsibility of
taking the victim to a hospital and waiting for his family to appear.
Remember- it could have been you.
