Letter to GoTN: Importance of Road Safety during lockdown and after lockdown is lifted

Thu, 21/05/2020 - 12:16
Author

Ever since the lockdown was announced in March 2020 in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, there have been media reports of several accidents of vehicles transporting migrant workers across the country. With roads being relatively free during the lock down, people tend to drive fast, and post lock down, we can expect a definite surge in accidents as many people will be on the roads and will tend to drive fast. Vulnerable road users may be the worst affected. This letter urges the government to release a road safety protocol (letter includes suggestions for road safety protocol), to be followed by road users, and strictly implemented.
