A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Road Safety’.
Wikipedia defines the term ‘Road Safety’ as follows: “Road traffic safety refers to the methods and measures used to prevent road users from being killed or seriously injured. Typical road users include pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, vehicle passengers, horse riders, and passengers of on-road public transport.”
Road safety thus is the precautionary measures taken to protect the safety of our lives on roadways. We, as pedestrians, are thus required by the law to follow the safety measures laid down by the traffic police while travelling on road in our private vehicles and even while walking.
They are predominantly simple in nature. Road safety basically involves easy acts such as wearing helmets while travelling by two-wheelers, using the zebra crossing while crossing roads and upholding basic traffic rules.
Let us vow to be careful henceforth and practice road safety!
