Aggressive Riding


It's common to find the roads congested everyday during the office beginning hours in the morning and ending hours in the Evening. However one can notice the aggressive riding of many bikes, cars. buses, vans, etc... For Example in Chennai, Tamil Nadu  we can find most aggressive riders like a military force staging a war against the enemies. The most affected are the Pedestrians, who cross the road at peak time. Pedestrians who fear to cross are, Old aged people, school children, women and outstation people. The places where people find hard to cross are near turnings, Rountana ,  and crossing other side of straight road.


Although Traffic rules are there, that says Vehicles needs to give way for people who cross road when Red signal is displayed, many are found breaking the rule for their comfort. Though they stop for red signal, few stop over the crossing line or the Zebra crossing line. This makes the pedestrians to fear for life and fear of Green signal displaying immediately. Once the Green signal starts, the vehicle drivers fly on the road rather then starting slowly. If a road crosser requests the vehicle driver to stop near the stop line, they simply throw dominating words, which insults the pedestrians and the fear of vehicles rushing if the Green signal display starts.

During the School time one would wonder if few of the Bike drivers are really human or if some Alien have started riding a bike, who never worry about children, women or old people crossing the road. The same can be observed with few drivers of car, public transport, taxi , van , share auto, etc. Thanks to good hearted people who stop at stop line and give way for pedestrians and who show their caring concern towards their fellow citizen. Those who break the road rules need not be called as citizens, rather may be named as Aliens from our own place.

Also we could notice many Police officials and constables managing Traffic and helping pedestrians by regulating the traffic users, especially the aggressive drivers. Let us be a good citizen by giving way to the pedestrians especially children, women, old people and patients.
