Social Media Poster: Sustainable Transport - Myth about Public transport

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.

Social Media Poster: 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.

Social Media Poster: 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!

Social Media Poster: Sustainable Transport - Myth about EVs

Using #ElectricVehicles doesn't mean #ZeroEmissions. The #Electricity that we use to power these cars is not 100% from #RenewableEnergy sources. #TamilNadu still relies heavily on #Coal energy & this is ultimately what powers our electric vehicles.

Social Media Poster: FoPL - Importance of Warning labels

Dr. R. Vadivelu, Cardiologist, Velammal Medical College Hospital, Madurai says, “Salt and sugar are the two white poisons; especially for those with heart disease or at risk of heart disease. Indians adore salt in their dishes. It is a well known fact  that high salt intake causes high blood pressure which then causes increased risk of stroke, heart attack, kidney failure and eye problems. In patients with high blood pressure, a lower salt intake will help control the condition with fewer medications. Similarly, in patients with heart failure, reduced salt intake will reduce the chances of repeated hospitalization.”
