What Is Road Safety? People Getting Charged For Recording Videos On Social Media

Road traffic safety refers to the methods and precautions taken to prevent road users from accidents that cause deaths, succumbing to injuries, or just critical injuries. Typical road users comprise people such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, vehicle passengers, buses, trams.

The road safety model pertains to purely crash risk, which is a far more complex matter.

Conducive aspects to highway crashes may be related to the driver (such as driver error, fatigue, or even illness) it could be the road itself (lack of sight distance, clear zones, poor roadside) the automobiles (brake, steering, etc). Interventions in the form of imposing fines or challans can prevent such road accidents or can at least reduce the severity of such accidents.

Summoning huge amounts and quantities of resources for road safety also contains and is of high potential despite the lack of a lead agency and dedicated funding arrangements and organizations. Strict, severe, and for the fact rigid enforcement have also significantly and majorly improved road user conformity and transparency. There was a major need of the hour for the appropriate and correct execution and implementation of the important laws in the country to prevent road rage.

Some of these rules and laws are helmet laws, working hours of tourist or maxi cab drivers, and even wine and beer shops along with the highways were to be tightened, the district collectors were even asked to rationalize the speed limits on highways and a control room was activated and set – up to monitor the highway police patrol.

Also, traffic regulations were strictly enforced with e-challans, fines, and penalties which are issued through the smart incorporation and amalgamation with the national vehicle and license databases throughout the country.
