What’s the use of complaining about indiscipline when we are all equally guilty?



  1. Radhika Raj Narayan says:

    We have, as a society, degenerated to unbelievable lows. We complain incessantly about garbage not being cleared, traffic jams, corruption – at the same time, throw our own household waste recklessly.

Vulnerable road-users like pedestrians, bicyclists and two-wheelers riders comprised 67% of the deceased. Road crashes also pose an economic burden, costing the exchequer 3.14% of India’s GDP annually.  These figures underscore the urgent need for effective interventions, aligned with global good practices. Sweden's Vision Zero road safety policy, adopted in 1997, focussed on modifying infrastructure to protect road users from unacceptable levels of risk and led to a…
