In Goa almost one person losing its life in a road accident on daily basis. Goa’s roads seem to have become the death traps for the commuters. According to the records, the month of April has noticed maximum numbers of accidents on the Goan roads. Why are the Goan roads turning into the death traps? Read the complete report here…

The accidents are inevitable and everyone someday or the other faces an accident of different types but the road accidents are the deadliest ones amongst all and something similar is happening in Goa for the past almost 15 days. More than dozens of people have lost their lives in various road accidents across the state. The cause of the accident has always been the violations of the traffic rules.

Despite the several warnings and after seeing the number of horrible accidents the people in the state are not ready to comply with the traffic norms. It looks like hardly anybody bothered about following the traffic guidelines. Even the Goa Police did not remain behind in this race. The news published by InGoa channel yesterday showed the clip of police vehicle crossing the lane and overtaking on the busy Mandovi bridge thus risking the lives of other people. When the police themselves does not follow the traffic rules what one can expect from the common men.   

JEEP INVOLVED INTO THE KHANDEPAR ROAD ACCIDENT

The accident that took place near Ponda is yet another example of the rash and negligent driving which took one life on Thursday. According to the sources, Bulesh Potun, 35, a resident of Khandola, Marcel, was riding to his home when an oncoming jeep crashed into his motorcycle, near Banastarim market, on Thursday. The sources have said that Potun died not the spot in the crash and he was taken like this only to the GMC in EMRI ambulance service but doctor pronounced him brought dead.

Meanwhile, the Ponda police registered an offense against the Jeep driver who managed to escape from the accident spot. This is the typical case wherein the driver resort to run away after hitting the innocent people on the road. According to the sources, this is the  5th case of death in a road accident in Ponda alone.

The sources have said that the Goan roads are becoming the death trap but what is the real reason behind all these accidents which took place during this month itself? According to the sources, the main reason behind all these road accident is said to be the reckless driving and not following the traffic rules. The accident that took place at Old Goa in which five people died on the spot is one such example of negligent driving since there were around eight people sitting in the car which was meant only for 5 seating capacity. The reason behind accident was the driver who lost control over the vehicle and went on the wrong side of the road first crushing two people and then hitting the oncoming truck.

In the last news article, we had mentioned that traffic police is more interested in issuing challans than implementing the rules strictly. Taking into the consideration all the accidents it looks like the licenses are also issued without making sure whether the holder of it is eligible or not. Only when the authorities start implementing the regulations strictly the graph of the accident will start going down until then please be prepared to face the consequences.
