Last summer I happily celebrated my first birthday. Within 2 months of my 1st birthday, I lost my doting mum in a road accident. She was only 25 at the time. My parents had a fairy tale wedding and started their life full of dreams and love. Everything was shattered in a matter of split seconds. I also lost my grandfather who was just beginning to enjoy his retirement life. My whole extended family has been grieving for the past one year not able to bear the loss of two loved ones. Our car driver's family is also suffering having lost their only bread winner.
I am starting this petition on the first death anniversary of my beautiful mother who will not see me growing up.
India has the highest number of accidents in the world. Let us join hands to save lives by requesting the Indian government to:
Promote strict road safety laws for highways and expressways
Offer training to drive in multi lane high ways
Compulsory seat belt regulation for all occupants enabled by in-car technology
Install proper road signs that are visible even in the dark and display road safety messages at frequent intervals
Install average speed check cameras at accident hot spots
Awareness of sleep deprivation effects during long drives
Enforce strict drink and drive laws.
