Road Safety - Skidding In floods

Author

Chennai has a lot of subways under railway tracks. Invariably most subways have puddles of water from sewage pipes or rain. These places are particularly risky for two wheelers. A few years back while I was going to meet my friend at Tambaram, I fell from the two wheeler due to slippery roads. Care should be taken to ensure there is no water stagnation in subways and that water drains away quickly.

Road Safety - Over speeding

Author

I travel home on a two wheeler during weekends from Puducherry to Karaikal to be with my family. However on one such trip in December 2019 I met with a road crash. Travelling at around 60 kmph, a dog suddenly crossed the road. I applied my brakes to avoid hitting the dog, but it was scary when the two wheeler skidded and I fell from the bike.

Road Safety - School students driving without license

Author

I live pretty close to a major school in Anna Nagar. In pre Covid-19 days, when schools were still up and running, young boys of that school, from 9th std to 12 std, used to ride around on expensive bikes like the Duke R15. Being young, their ability to understand risks and moderate their behavior, is also poor.

Making Electricity Bills Consumer Friendly - A Tamil Nadu Case Study

CAG, in partnership with Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), and supported by Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation has conducted a study on using the electricity bill as an enabling mechanism to improve information disclosure and promote greater public participation in the electricity sector. This Tamil Nadu Case Study captures consumers’ perception of electricity bill formats, awareness of bill elements and their expectations from a model bill, and in-turn recommends redesigning of Tamil Nadu’s electricity bill format based on consumer feedback

Road Safety - Crossing the roads

Author

This happened a few years ago. I had had a fever all day and had barely eaten. I had to go out for some reason even though I was feeling quite weak and ill. I was attempting to cross the road and was halfway across, when I saw a bike approaching me at some speed.

Road Safety - Motorbike skidding

Author

In August 2020, just after the lock down was lifted I was travelling on my bike at around 6’o clock in the morning. A water tanker lorry had just passed ahead of me, leaking water. Oblivious to the water present on the road I was travelling at 40 kmph.  A car ahead of me braked hard  to avoid hitting a vehicle that stopped abruptly ahead of him.
