A recent study by Daniel Osberghaus and Oli Schenker of ZEW–Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research in cooperation with Frankfurt School found that #ClimateChange induced #HeatWaves can cause exports to plummet worldwide. This could cost the #GlobalEconomy at least ₹5,800 crores from 2020-39. #ClimateActionNow

Sustainable Transport - Relocation of bus routes

Tue, 20/09/2022 - 17:09
Author

Recently, due to road work, bus routes have been diverted in parts of Chennai, resulting in bus stops being moved abruptly, with no prior notice, leaving disconcerted regular commuters. Imagine the plight of someone new to the neighbourhood! Bus stop relocations should be announced through signage well before & during the move. It should also inform users as to when it will return to normalcy. It's not just enough for the bus driver to know!

Last year, 2000+ pedestrians died on #TamilNadu’s roads. Everyone is a #pedestrian. Isn't it time we enforced pedestrian rights? Calling on citizens, TN govt & municipal corporations to prioritise people over cars.

Sustainable Transport - Myth about Public transport

Tue, 13/09/2022 - 10:40
Author

Making public transport free is one step towards increasing patronage. We need to go much further. We need holistic planning that both improves the quality of public transport service while discouraging use of private vehicles to actually change current travel habits. Apart from being affordable, public transport needs to be safe, comfortable, and accessible.

Road Safety - Special Task Force data 2022

Mon, 12/09/2022 - 11:06
Author

The recently published Special Task Force data has added 22,000 road crash deaths to #TamilNadu's road fatalities for 2017- 2020. Last year, the TN #government hinted that the massive reduction in #deaths reported between 2017-2020 had to be rechecked. This addition of deaths is a result of that process. It is good to know that the state has rechecked data & is not hiding the error, but this calls for accurate data collection & consistent action on #RoadSafety.

Road Safety - Seat Belt compliance among rear seat passengers

Fri, 09/09/2022 - 10:23
Author

CAG's #Seatelt compliance studies show very poor compliance among rear seat passengers. The unfortunate death of #CyrusMistry highlights that #Airbags work only in conjunction with seatbelts. The law requires you to be buckled up & courts have started to reduce post-crash compensation for those who don't wear safety gear!
