“Road Rage” by Umang Ramani – Class – VII – D – DPS Surat

In the early times when the number of vehicles were very less on the roads in our country, there were no serious needs for traffic rules and regulations. But with the constant growth in number of vehicles the road is flooded with different kinds of  vehicles. With the constant growth in vehicles many traffic chaos on the roads particularly in India. About 80,000 people are killed every year in India. All kinds of people drive the vehicles and especially the under 18 teenagers who put their life at risk by illegally riding vehicles. Few honest people only follow rules and regulations. Usually youngsters drive very roughly without wearing a helmet without any knowledge of traffic rules. While driving a car some people do not wear seat belts. Reckless driving of teenagers may be dangerous not only to themselves but to all other road users. Motorists and two wheeler riders driving at high speed on narrow roads may also lose their lives. When the road is vacant some people think that nobody will come in between the road and accidents generally occur on these roads.

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.

Importance of Following Traffic Rules by Megh Shah – Class – VII- C – DPS Surat

“At high speeds, try slowing down and not put a full stop to your life.”

These immortal words are undoubtedly true.
Gone are those good days when there were safety/health concerns of the people. People used bicycles to get around and only the rich had cars that did not exceed 60 kmph. Now, in this fast world, there is ‘Need for Speed’ as cars can exceed 300 kmph!
To help people reach their destinations safely, traffic rules were created. Almost half of the people injured in traffic accidents are following traffic rules, well that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t follow them but those who don’t, should follow them, else nobody would get anywhere!
