The challenge of making our roads safer can be met only with the whole hearted support and commitment of the entire community. So what can we do to help as citizens?

Be a model road user- Learn the rules and follow them conscientiously even when nobody is watching. Don't justify traffic violations by saying that you are sure that they are 'safe'. Remember, you are inspiring others to violate law and they may do so under not so safe circumstances.

Educate others- anybody you can influence, your family, your friends or your colleagues. The task of teaching the rules or road safety to a society as diverse and heterogeneous as ours requires the dedicated support of enlightened citizens. You can use your special gift for art or music or theatre or technology for carrying the message of road safety to the millions who need to be educated.

Be active citizens- Your enthusiasm can force even the most lethargic of systems to move. Know the traffic problems and road safety issues of your locality, your office, your child's school and so on. You must follow up on the construction of that rotary or the installation of that traffic signal that is needed in your locality. Your enthusiasm shall ensure that no procedural bottle-necks hold up urgently needed engineering works.

Don't expect the Government to do it all- The community has immense resources. It can definitely raise internal funds for minor interventions like building a wall to close a dangerous illegal entry point or engaging private manpower to help in the regulation of parking in commercial areas or outside schools. 

Always help the accident victim - The fear of false implication in the matter is totally irrational. You must be prepared to undertake the responsibility of taking the victim to a hospital and waiting for his family to appear. Remember- it could have been you. (See Link)

Volunteer as Marshals- If you want to actively participate in traffic regulation and law enforcement join as a marshal or inform us what you want to do and how we can help you with it.
