Why this petition matters

Started by Nitin Mishra

India has no doubt made good progress in upgrading its highways and improving the condition of existing roads. With improved roads driving speed of vehicles has naturally gone up thereby increasing the risk of accidents. Lack of awareness (and violation) of road safety rules and guidelines compounds the risk.
I had a first hand experience of the increased risk to driving during a family outing recently. Blatant violation of road safety rules including but not limited to the following was seen.
1. Vehicles (especially trucks) driving without functional tail lamps during night hours,

2. Heavy vehicles driving on all available lanes leaving no room for overtaking,

3. Trucks parked on roadside without hazard lamps,

4. Vehicles driving on the wrong side of the road.

5. Tractor trailers without tail lamps or hazard lamps.

I hereby request the honorable minister for road safety to ensure stricter checks on condition of vehicles for mandatory requirement like functional tail lamps and hazard lamps, improved awareness about and stringent implementation of road safety rules and guidelines.
