Reduce the menace of underage driving
- Can we as citizens work with our circles to have a plan to reduce the number of such incidents across the state
- Communicate with parents / schools / children - that underage driving is illegal, dangerous and is punishable.
- Most accidents happen early in the morning or late at night when children are travelling to and fro from their tuitions. They are exhausted, sleepy, driving vehicles that are too big for them, have a number of pillion riders, and showing off by driving fast. They should not be on the roads and should definitely not be driving illegally. Can we have more police deployed early in the morning or through the night to catch these young children and to confiscate the vehicle and punish the parents for putting their children in danger.
- Can we suggest to parents to organize pooling to drive their children in turns to their respective tuition classes.
It is time we place more value on our children's lives rather than on marks and our own busy schedules. more
