Take road safety seriously

The number of deaths from road accidents that we have seen of late should not be ignored. During the Eid holidays, we saw more than 40 people losing their lives in a short span of only three days.

Many of the accidents occurred because of reckless driving. But the government cannot shirk its responsibility either as it has taken literally no steps to reign in errant drivers.

The condition of the roads and highways in our country is another reason why we see so many accidents. And the fact that the government has failed to streamline the transportation sector, even though road accidents have become a leading cause for deaths in our country, speaks volumes about its performance when it comes addressing the issue.
