a model road user- Learn the rules and follow them conscientiously
even when nobody is watching. Don't justify traffic violations
by saying that you are sure that they are 'safe'. Remember,
you are inspiring others to violate law and they may do so
under not so safe circumstances.
Educate others- anybody you can influence, your family, your
friends or your colleagues. The task of teaching the rules
or road safety to a society as diverse and heterogeneous as
ours requires the dedicated support of enlightened citizens.
You can use your special gift for art or music or theatre
or technology for carrying the message of road safety to the
millions who need to be educated.
Be active citizens- Your enthusiasm can force even the most
lethargic of systems to move. Know the traffic problems and
road safety issues of your locality, your office, your child's
school and so on. You must follow up on the construction of
that rotary or the installation of that traffic signal that
is needed in your locality. Your enthusiasm shall ensure that
no procedural bottle-necks hold up urgently needed engineering
Don't expect the Government to do it all- The community has
immense resources. It can definitely raise internal funds
for minor interventions like building a wall to close a dangerous
illegal entry point or engaging private manpower to help in
the regulation of parking in commercial areas or outside schools.
Always help the accident victim - the fear of false implication
in the matter is totally irrational. You must be prepared
to undertake the responsibility of taking the victim to a
hospital and waiting for his family to appear. Remember- it
could have been you.
Volunteer as Marshals- If you want to actively participate
in traffic regulation and law enforcement join as a marshal
or inform us what you want to do and how we can help you with
