14 August Independence day Responsibity
14 August has been recognizing as the Pakistan. We will celebrate 14th August with pleasure and joy. These coming days are extra ordinary and everybody should wish and celebrate the day with maximum participation. In order to keep ourselves safe and also ensure the safety of those around us, and as a responsible nation, here is a guideline which can be followed:
- Obey traffic rules
Traffic rules exist to ensure that there is basic order and discipline being followed in a society. Failure to do so would only lead to chaos and endanger the lives of people on the road. Even if you see the rules being violated by many on this occasion, try to be the responsible and act with responsible attitude and gesture.
- Use safety helmets
The real kind, not the ones that only serve the purpose of saving a ticket. This simple act can make the difference between life and death by saving the bike rider from a fatal injury. It’s not common in our society for both riders to wear helmets, why not start the good trends with you.
- Avoid one wheeling
The authorities this year are also gearing up efforts to reduce the menace of one wheeling, as the number of dead and injured being brought to hospitals on all such occasions is reaching ridiculous numbers. There are better activities to channel your talent and energy towards, look around. If you see someone doing one wheeling DO NOT APPRECIATES this irresponsible act if possible discourage this action as undesirable. THUMBS DOWN.
- Don’t pollute
This can be of various types, from throwing trash all around to even noise pollution. The noise of vehicles without silencers isn’t the kind of music people would like to hear, you are not doing a service to anyone by creating this mess and neither by the blasting music that certainly is not to everyone likes. Due to the distraction created, the critically important focus on the road would be lost by many around your vehicle creating a safety hazard.
- Secure the flags properly
Huge flags which are not secured properly can get tangled in the wheels of your ride or even the vehicles around you and cause accidents, you would not want ruining someone’s life just because you felt like celebrating a certain way, would you.
- Safety yours
Keep the kids strapped in their specially designed baby seats, and make it a habit to make them sit in the back seats instead of using them as an airbag by making them sit in your lap on the front seat. They certainly are worth a lot more than that..
- Dangling outside the vehicle
It’s never a good idea to invite injuries by exposing yourself outside a moving vehicle that too in crowded roads, either through the windows or sunroof and in the case of our public we would need to mention, the boot of our cars. It would take the slightest of mistake for you to lose a limb or two for life, a very high cost to pay for a comparatively less action in return. Any unstrapped occupant in a moving vehicle even inside it is vulnerable to injuries in case of any jerks, and the risk increases exponentially for someone outside it.
We hope you have a joyous, festive and most importantly a safe independence day. Happy 14th of August!
