Few days back I read a news about couple of students from SRM college who were waiting outside for bus were knocked down by a vechile. Seems it is an accident prone zone. The traffic commisioner when enquired about this his reply was since that is an highway they cant put speed breakers and they are searcing for solutions.
My first issue is this is one lame excuse. If they decide to put speed breaker they can put it even is a runway. What will he call all those back breaking speed breakers in ECR? Will he call ECR as a small lane?
May be he was implying they always rely on natural speed breakers which chennai is very famous for.
Today another news that in GN Chetty road a car knocked down an auto (the auto is now unrecognisable) and killed two persons in the auto. This has happened in GN Chetty road which is crowded road where you cant even go beyond 30 km/hr.
Has the governtment taken any effort for prevention of accidents? So many valuable lives are lost because of their inaction.
The problem is there used to be a time when things happen to others we wont care and when things happen to us we will react but now that also has changed. If it happens to us also we wont react.
