EFFECTS OF RASH ,WRONG SIDE DRIVING & NOT- OBEYING THE TRAFFIC RULE

These are really dangerous as they might cause fatal accidents for the drivers  and others.My residence is in Medavakkam.I have seen few accidents on Velacherry main road,Medavakkam, while crossing the road to reach the school bus stop.All these accidents those I saw were due to wrong side driving. Here is an incident . :

It was a tuesday morning.As usual, I was in a hurry;needed to rush in     order to reach the bus . I left the house and went  down the stairs with my mom,in a fast pace.Suprisingly it only took 15 seconds to go down through the stairs and 2 mins to reach the enterance of  the whole apartment.*Huh,great!.i’m going to be early!*but I need to cross the huge 

main road.I didn’t know ,I just felt like holding my mom’s hand and I did it too.We walked toward the left of the main road(well,that bumpy region is our pedestrian walkway).Suddenly,an auto came in the wrong side and  hit a woman who was standing before me.She fell into the sandy puddle& got her feet & hand fractured.The driver didn’t bother to help her or apologize. He ran away.People helped her .We crossed the road and I reached the bus.

First of all:

  • driving on the wrong side is opposing the rules
  • he came to the left side too(pedastrian walkway).

       SUCH RASH DRIVING SKILLS CAUSE ROAD DAMAGES TOO.

a)Yes.Due to rash drivers such as bikers,taxis &autos,I need to drive slow which delays and changes my schedule. The second case is where there is a accident and people surround that place.It blocks our path.So there is tension everywhere and this leads to many quarrels. These chaotic situations also have a great impact on my mood. Third reason is when my car gets hit either by a rash driver or the bumpy road.

a)yes ,but not alone.There should be a traffic police booth where the accidents are frequent.The traffic department should work effectively in order to bring discipline.
