Right to Walk
Right to Walk
Greetings to all of you. It saddens me to see the existing footpaths of patiala being dismantled with impunity everyday in the name of development. The city which has always been proud of its clean environment is increasingly being changed into a cement city with roads reaching upto the houses and footpaths and green sidewalks eaten up by widening roads........the essence of the city is being increasingly lost in the name of short sighted development. As a result citizens are being forced to commute by motorised vehicles instead of walking or cycling around the beautiful city. The benefits to the health of the people and the environment are being ignored in all this.The risk to the lives of cyclists and walkers by increasing traffic can never be overemphasised......Patiala has lost 98 citizens in road accidents last year and majority of them were pedestrians and Nonmotorised transport users which are 46 percent of the road stakeholders.Therefore Patiala Foundation calls on each one of you to sign the petition to the District Administration to save our rights to safe roads with footpaths and necessary road safety infrastructure instead of the senseless wastage of public resources in the name of short sighted development.The roads belong to all stakeholders equally and the health of the city and its environment is as important as that of its people.
