Life, Death and Following Traffic Rules by Apurva Rakesh – Class – VII – C – DPS Surat

I’m pretty sure that all those who are reading this article have broken at least one traffic rule in their life. It may be missing a red light or underage driving and quite a few times wondered how really these rules help us. Although I’d love to say that they’ve been made by the government for earning extra money but that’s not the case. Believe it or not these rules may prove to be the line between life and death for somebody, a red light for an elderly person who cannot cross roads like those young runners. These rules just don’t work for the drivers of the vehicle but for every citizen who uses the roads. Sometimes we don’t realise this but they do.

“Better Late Than Never” by Kalash Vimawala – Class – VIII-F – DPS Surat

It is rightly said ” Better Late Than never” because when a person is in a hurry to reach his destination and breaks the signal, the result usually is that he lands up in a hospital. Always remember that ‘ Every Rule Counts’. Sometimes you might think that you don’t need a helmet because you drive slowly, but an accident may happen due to rash driving of the other person. So, ‘Be safe, drive safe’. Boys and girls below the age of 18 years are not permitted to ride a vehicle since they lack the maturity and sense of responsibility required. Always wear seatbelt while travelling in a car. Traffic rules are made for our safety, followers are winners. Rules and signals are to prevent confusion and accidents.

Why do we need Traffic Rules by Varnika Kanodia – Class VIII-F – DPS Surat

Reckless driving just may be your ticket to some place out of this world! The enchantment of technology and the start of urbanization have transferred the standard living of individuals in travelling and moving commodities from one place to another. These changes have brought upon difficulties and problem of travelling due to unavoidable traffic congestions, especially at rush hours! Every day many people are involved in accidents. Some are injured or maimed. So many children become orphans and so many spouses lose their loved ones. It is necessary to have rules everywhere, for the smooth functioning of the pedestrians and vehicles. If there were no traffic rules then it would be a picture of total chaos and confusion. Signs, Signals and rules and regulations are used to make priority precise and function in a discipline manner! These rules are not for the policemen but they are for you. Giving a few bucks to the policeman can save you from the police, but how many bucks would you offer God when he would seek your life, after the accident. So,

Message from Shivi Khanna-Class 8-F- DPS Surat : Alert Today – Alive Tomorrow

Alert Today – Alive Tomorrow

If you look around these days, you notice that accidents are increasing day by day. To reduce them we should follow the laws made by the traffic police. ‘RULES ARE MEANT TO BREAK’. This is common saying which is said by all in the country – especially we Indians do many accidents and break laws. Although there is a very high punishment-“ACCIDENT” which we realize only when if it comes to us or happens with us. Agreed! Government is clueless but being responsible citizens what is our role? To teach children driving at the age of 14? To wear helmet/ seat belt in sight of policemen? The list seems to be endless. However these problems can be overcome by strict enforcement of rules on the offenders who flaunt laws. They should be caught and the fees should be increased, only road vehicles should be allowed, as mostly teenagers and young people are nowadays prone to accidents, so the age should be increasing and if not so then their family members should be cancelled. Traffic rules are for us and not for policemen as our health and wealth is in our hands so,

Traffic Rules and Road Safety: a message by Yashi Champaneria Class-VIII- D DPS Surat

Following traffic rules is an essential part of our lives. This is a set of allocated rules which makes the traffic all over the world manageable. This prevents loss of life. Road safety should also be followed by pedestrians and drivers alike. This also helps saving countless lives. This especially should be implemented by Indian citizens as India is an overpopulated country, the main cause of loss of lives in India is due to road accidents caused due to not following the traffic rules. This may be due to petty reasons such as drinking and driving, speeding, changing lanes without a warning or simply not following the traffic rules.

‘5 Killed In Car Crash and 2 Injured.’

These kinds of headlines are frequently read in newspapers. To think why this happens is not a puzzle, the answer is simply due to violating traffic rules. India is not properly aware about following traffic or road safety rules and regulations. The Government should put up schemes and spread awareness on this serious issue. With the help and cooperation of the citizens the roads will be a safer place, by preventing loss of lives and preventing the damage of public property, to stop excessive pollution as gas leakage and the wreckage of metal car bodies is harming the nature day by passing day. Government has applied schemes such as no drinking and driving, no speeding on highways to spread awareness in India. The Government has enforced strict punishments to those who do not follow the road and traffic rules. The road law enforcers are such that they are non-corrupt, install proper working traffic signals and safety cameras, paint zebra crossing on the road and fine the citizens who break the traffic rules without any discrimination on their part.

But if the citizens do not follow the rules, no matter how many schemes the Government props up with, this all will be in a vain. So if we all value our lives follow the rules because no matter how much money we pay, how much we regret our choices and feel guilty once lives are lost, memories forgotten and hearts broken they can never be brought back again.

Road Safety Message from Preet Sharan- Class VII-F-Delhi Public School Surat

“You Only Live Once”

 Everyday many people are killed or get severally injured . One should learn and use the roads carefully and safely. In a survey it was said that every ten seconds there is a road accident somewhere in the world. People in India take road safety rules very lightly. Over speeding is a common sight on the roads. Outside India in many developed countries road safety rules are very strict. The traffic department of Surat city earns crores of rupees every year. Roads, nowadays have become very busy. One should use a pedestrian crossing or an overhead bridge to cross roads. In case there are none, one should look left and right and the cross the road. As for drivers, one should wear a seat belt and turn on the indicator lights while turning or changing the lane. Two wheeler drives must wear a helmet while riding their two wheeler.

A Message from Reet Magoo of Class VII-C on following Road Safety Rules

Whenever I hear about road safety rules the first thing that reflects my mind is that are we really following safety rules?? These rules are very simple but it requires immense patience and discipline to follow them, that we lack. It can create a big impact on our lives, the innocent ones and the people around us. It is just one step to make India a developing country into a developed one. Now-a-days even with our highly sophisticated technology many people are disobeying the rules. There are separate roads for bicycles but the motorcycles and cars block their way. On the other hand the system is faulty too. The traffic police are sitting idle too which leads too many accidents. Reportedly in India from 1997 to 2006-14000 accidents have taken place. When we talk about Road Safety Rules, we feel they are over-icing on the cake. But the road safety rules are very important to prevent accidents & the best way to follow the Road Safety Rules is to act like a police herself/himself. It is for the betterment of the future. Remember we the children of India, no one can stop us from making India a civilized nation.   So,
