In response to the news titled ‘Sustained awareness needed to improve road safety in JK: Vaid’ published in Rising Kashmir on January 24. The reports says that ‘Road Safety Week would be observed by organizing awareness activities like seatbelt and helmet campaign, over speeding and drunk driving, overloading and overcrowding, reflective tape and under safety protection device, driving licenses and vehicle fitness.’ We have seen so many safety weeks and programmes but the number of accidents in Kashmir are increasing day by day. The biggest reason behind accidents in Kashmir is that people are not following the safety rules and that is because the traffic officials are not being strict all through the year. People are over speeding their cars, do stunts on roads, and do not drive in their own lanes and overtake others whenever they get a chance. People are doing it because traffic officials do not catch these culprits and allow they violate rules.
