I am writing this article to bring to your notice the increasing number of road accidents due to reckless driving. We have to stress the importance of following traffic rules.
People should follow the road signals. These signs have got a very important role to play in the traffic system and they are made for the safety of the people. People should not use their cell phones while driving or at the pedestrians crossing. We should always keep to the left, allowing the vehicles from the opposite direction to pass. We should also give way to traffic on your right, especially at road junctions and roundabout. While turning either left or right, give way to vehicles going straight. While turning left keep to the left side and turn close to the left side of the road to which you enter. These are some of the traffic safety rules which I know. I humbly request you to publish this article in your column, so that the public will be aware of it. Thus the best drivers are aware that they must beware!
