“Safety is not an intellectual exercise to keep us in work. It is a matter of life and death. It is the sum of our contributions to safety management that determines whether the people we work with live or die”
– Sir Brian Appleton
It will be better to start learning good safety habits right from an early age. Nowadays you will be witnessing so many road accidents, injuries and eventual death caused by these nasty accidents. By properly following various road safety measures, you can prevent a number of road accidents and injuries. As students are the future of country, they also have a duty to make roads safer and hence they play a vital role in ensuring road safety.
As a student, you will be able to implement your innovative ideas regarding road safety and thus constitute a right direction for bettering the future. Creating a safe road should be your first priority. You can conduct awareness programs in the public and can extend a helping hand to traffic police in controlling the traffic especially during rush hours.
Today, student road safety is a huge issue to handle. The following are the three main roles played by students in matters of road safety:
1. Model Road Users: Firstly, you act as a model road user by closely following the rules and regulations related to road safety. You represent the future of a nation and hence you can set an example and at the same time motivate others. For this, you need to have determination to try and impart different road safety measures.
2. Road Safety Educators: Once you know about how to be a model user, you will be able to educate unenlightened and illiterate people. Most of the people are unaware of basic traffic rules, you can offer them help by teaching those basic traffic rules and regulations. You can also make them aware of various consequences resulted by not following those orders.
3. Pressure Groups:You can act as part of interest group by virtue of your knowledge, experience and passion for road safety. This is the reason by which student road safety education is introduced in the curriculum of secondary education.
When you think about safer roads, the things that comes to your mind are road dividers, zebra crossings, parking slots, road safety sign boards, traffic booths and awareness programmes. Wrong parking, over speeding, and crossing the roads at wrong spots are some of the traffic violations you may witness. As a student, you can give a helping hand in traffic management and thus prevent so many traffic violations.
