Pedestrians are one of the most vulnerable groups on our roads though walking is most environment-friendly and sustainable mode of transport. Legally, motorists are required to give Right of Way to pedestrians but rarely does a motorist in India do so.
Roads in India are invariably geared towards a small group of users. The needs of people who are old, slow, differently-abled, etc are rarely considered by those who design roads and by those who use them.
Emergency, life-saving help from ambulances (and other emergency services) are often delayed due to emergency vehicles getting stuck in traffic. It is our legal and ethical duty as road users and citizens to give way to emergency vehicles and contribute in saving a life.
