Carpooling - On the right track
Over the 10 years of Suraksha Road Safety Society's existence, our focus has been school children. Our study conducted jointly with IIT-Madras on pedestrian safety in T. Nagar has helped us focus on four core issues.
The first is clearing 200 yards outside and around the schools of hawkers so that footpaths are accessible to the children. The second is that we work at promoting exclusive cycle lanes at least in areas where feasible. This will lessen road mishaps. Thirdly, and more importantly, we want traffic safety lessons to be mandatory in schools. And lastly, we insist that every school appoint a transport officer. The Government must insist on car-pooling to save fuel and road space, and in a country where road etiquette receives low priority, change should begin at the grass-roots level.
