THE IMPORTANCE OF OBSERVING ROAD SAFETY RULES
Road accident is on the rise in our country recently.Majority of the drivers just care for their own and neglect the importance of observing road safety rules.''Prevention is better than cure'',we should walk in single file,use pedestrian crossings and overhead bridges,not take risks and observe our speed limits when we are on the road.
Firstly,pedestrian should walk and cycle in single file especially along narrow road.Thus,heavy traffic vehicles will have adequate space to drive on smoothly.Otherwise,accidents will occur easily if the driver fail to make an emergency brake.Therefore,pedestrian especially students should walk and cycle one by one to ensure their safety.
Pedestrian crossings and overhead bridges are provided at some busy roads.By using them,pedestrian will safer and can avoid some accidents.It is really dangerous for pedestrian to dash across the road without using zebra-crossing or overhead bridge.They may be run over by the speeding,heavy traffic vehicles easily if the traffic volumn is heavy.This may cause tragic road accident too.Therefore,we should use these facilities to ensure our lives and reduce the number of accidents.
To prevent taking risks,car drivers and passengers should fasten safety belts when they are on the road.This will prevent them from colliding with the windscreen when an emergency brake is applied.For motorcyclists,they should wear helmets when they are riding on the road.Otherwise,they will suffer from serious injury especially on their head if they are involved in an accident.
Besides,it is pivotal for the drivers to observe their speed limits at all times.If not,they will not know they are over speeding and even tend to accelerate their speed.It is really dangerous as they cannot make an immediate emergency brake when a pedestrian crosses the road suddenly.As a result,accidents will occur as easy as ABC if drivers do not observe their speed limits regularly.
Life is priceless,we should observe road safety rules to ensure the other road-users'' safety and of course our own lives.Or else,it will be too late for us to regret when we happen to see our loving family members and our close friends sacrifice in road accidents.
