In TWO days we have seen 3 accidents involving TRUCKS with two deaths, APMC road, Sampige Road Vishveshwrayya nagar and today Sangolli Rayana Circle Belagavi.
In all the accidents the HTV have been the cause of deaths, ofcourse it is yet to be established who was at fault the bike rider or the Truck driver.
Again non wearing of helmets is a cause of concern at the same time Traffic Management at the circles is not visible. We do see officers standing in 2-3 and then collecting fine but a few could be used to manage traffic at Dharmveer Sambhaji Circle and other circles.
The Riders/drivers may be at fault, but this is also a issue of traffic management and how steps can be taken which will ensure smooth flow of traffic needs to assessed.
Setting up a high end Command control centre is dream come true but regular traffic management is a must which we seen to be lacking for years.
We haven’t seen a Police constable at Dharmveer Sambhaji Circle for years now WHY? There are accident prone spots which have been identified but nothing has been done to prevent more accidents from happening.
A life is lost, we post RIP messages but for the family he could be the only bread earner and after the incident their entire life is changed.
Accident is an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, but there should be something the Authorities need to look into for managing the traffic.
Again dearth of staff has been a major issue for the police to have sufficient staff to manage the circles.
Pointing fingers towards one is an easy job after an incident, but we all have to stand up and realize, today it was someone else; what if it was me or my family member ?
