Ushering in the spirit of festivity and marking the victory of good over evil the auspicious festival of Dussehra is here. It calls for cleansing of all evils that dwell within and around us. Featured below are 10 things you can pledge to do, this Dusshera, to make roads a safer heaven for yourself and others around you:
Alcohol abuse is an evil which prevails in our society and has effectively ruined many lives. There’s a dramatic rise in drunk driving cases around Dusshera and festive season. Make sure you don’t indulge in anything which can put you and your loved ones’ lives at risk.
In the wake of Dusshera celebrations, people are often seen jumping the red lights breaking the basics of all the rules. Always refrain from indulging in any such activity, while driving your car.
Over-speeding or crossing speed limits is one of the major causes of road accidents. It is tempting to drive fast; the dangers of excessive speeding don’t outweigh the benefits, as it can result into an unwanted situation. Avoid over-speeding to keep yourself, your vehicle and other people on the road safe.
High beam headlights give bright and long-range illumination. Using high beams within the city limits can cause split second blindness, leading to accidents. It’s important to switch headlights according to the weather and the time of day while being mindful of other drivers.
One of the leading causes of car accidents is texting while driving. It is an increasingly common practice among all age groups, which results into driving distractions and is extremely dangerous, as it can cost you or someone else their lives. You need to keep your attention on the road and not on your mobile phones.
Driving a bit more sensibly can work wonders for you and for everyone else. Honking continuously has never helped anyone in a traffic jam, instead it only adds to the noise pollution and makes things difficult for the elderly, heart-patients and new-borns. Please don’t forget to remind this to yourself and others around you for the next time you hit the road!
Driving should always be practiced with the upmost caution and precision. Though there are many factors that can potentially cause an accident to take place, there’s one element that you should constantly be conscious of — wearing a seatbelt.
Driving against traffic down the wrong side on this stretch not only causes traffic jams, but also often leads to road rage quarrels. Driving on the wrong side is not only a disregard of the traffic rules, but also poses a danger for those who are driving on the right side.
Tailgating while driving is one of the most dangerous practices as it leaves no safety margin and if you follow too closely, you can't see beyond the preceding vehicle, which most of times leads to an accident. Always drive in such a way that you can pull up in the distance you can see to be clear.
Senseless parking shows that you don’t care about other people. Bad parking leads to traffic jams and results in road-rage, something that you surely won’t want to indulge on a peaceful festival of Dusshera.
So, let this be an awakening call and do you part to wipe out the bad from the road, like we burn the effigies of Ravan every year on this auspicious occasion.
Wishing you all a very Safe and Happy Dussehra!
