He was the light of their lives, the sole wage-earner for his aged mother and sister, since his father’s death years ago. Setting off for Delhi where he worked, he promised his sister that he would return for Raksha Bandhan.

But the deadly Yamuna Expressway along which he was travelling ensured that he didn’t.It took 29 lives that day. Sons, brothers, daughters, wives, husbands, mothers, fathers…. All gone.

29 families shattered.

I was a witness to the trauma and suffering of the families as the horrible scene of death unfolded some time back at Yamuna expressway. I felt their pain, their tragic loss.

A stray incident? An accident?No.

The media has reported more than 5000 such ‘accidents’ on the Yamuna Expressway, that have snatched away more than 700 lives and injured more than 7000.

These are not ‘accidents’. This is negligence.

Negligence in ignoring the recommendations of the Central Road Research institute(CRRI) to install crash barrier on the Expressway in order to prevent accidents.

As of now, there is only a barbed wire separating the two sides of the Expressway.Can a barbed wire stop a speeding vehicle from jumping over to the opposite side? Obviously not.But a strong Crash barrier can.

A crash barrier can make the difference between life and death for the thousands of commuters on the busy Yamuna Expressway.

Join me in raising a collective voice to the U.P. Govt., telling them that we want an ‘Expressway of Life’, not of Death.

We want  Crash barriers  installed and urgent measures taken up to ensure maximum safety of travellers on this Expressway.

If we remain silent, we ourselves, or our precious family members may one day become victims of another ‘accident’ on this Expressway.

Some people might believe that ‘ accidents’ just happen, they are beyond our control. But the truth is that they CAN be prevented, and many lives can be saved.

Let’s help prevent accidents.

Let’s help save precious lives.

Let’s make the Yamuna Expressway Safe.
