Speech on Road Safety
Good morning everyone presents here. Today I am standing before you to deliver a speech on topic Road Safety. Let me first share a fact which we all must not be aware of. In 2018 India reported 151 thousand fatalities & causing injuries to around 5 lakh people due to road accidents. I think the stats tell it all how vital is road safety & how we all are lagging in that.
Road safety refers to obeying all the rules & regulations while using the road by any means, let it be by walking, cycling or in a vehicle. It helps us to keep ourselves safe on roads, i.e. keeps us free from any injury or harm.
This is the time to realise that it is a human-made problem. When people start ignoring the road safety rules or them, do not obey these rules due to lots of reasons & excuses, it leads to not only injuries but also loss of life. On the other hand, a number of vehicles are on the rise, which is also a root cause of the problem.
Road safety practices are vital as it equips the road users with the skill to protect themselves & other road users from unnecessary harm. It also ensures orderliness in the road by keeping the vehicles & pedestrians safe in their place. It defines the rules on exactly how the roads must be used.
It is possible to maintain law & order for the well being of road user by Road safety. It reduces the fatalities & other causalities on the roads. We all use the road daily & road safety is taught to us from our very elementary education. Time to time awareness regarding the same is also given.
In India road, safety week is celebrated every year under the guidelines of the Ministry of Transport & Highways & National Security Council. The government is trying to enforce the rules from the very ground level. It depends on us, users how to respond to those rules.
After being well educated & aware of road safety, if we still ignore or skip any road safety rules, then it will be our foolishness. We must keep in mind that by doing so, we are inviting danger to our lives as well as for the other users of the road. It is often quoted that if we stay alert today, we will be alive tomorrow. So be alert & be safe on roads.

By these, we put our lives in not only danger but also the other people who are using the road.
There are few basics rules which we must follow. Following all traffic, rules constitute a significant chunk of road safety. Using helmet, keeping your vehicle papers ready, driving vehicles within speed limit are few of them.
For pedestrians using the zebra crossing, walking on pavements are few of the critical rules. We should always sit in our seat in the bus, must not play or jump inside moving vehicle, must not keep our head or hands out of the vehicle are essential for every passenger travelling and not using phones or earphones while on the road is crucial for this generation.
