Worry Over Road Deaths

 State Government is worried over the ever rising death cases due road accidents in Odisha.

 
So Commerce & Transport Minister Padmanav Behera has urged the authorities concerned to take various measures to bring down the fatalities rate.
 
Chairing the first meeting of the State Road Safety Council at State Secretariat here on 8 July, the Minister laid stress on taking stringent action against people involved in rash driving, implementation of engineering technology, enforcement of the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court-appointed committee, and immediate treatment of accident victims to reduce traffic-related death rates in the State.

APC Gagan Kumar Dhal,DGP R P Sharma,  Commerce & Transport Department Principal Secretary G Srinivas, Excise Secretary S
 K Lohani, Transport Commissioner Anil Kumar Samal and members of the Truck and Bus Owners Associations participated in the meeting.

Mr.Behera emphasized on holding district-wise monthly meetings under the chairmanship of the respective Collectors, and provide medical treatment within an hour in case of any road accident.
 
Notably, 1.49 lakh people in India and 5,315 in Odisha lost their lives in traffic-related accidents in the year 2018 while over 5,000 received severe injuries in Odisha during this period.
 
Keeping in view the gravity of the matter, the Committee formed by the Apex Court of India had urged the State governments to reduce accident-related death rate by 50 percent by the year 2020.
 
And specifically reduce fatality on road by 10 percent every year against the previous year which has put a challenge before the Odisha Government, the Minister said.
 
Mr.behera said that every necessary step would be taken to achieve the target set by the SC-appointed committee.
 
Mr.Behera said that rash driving, driving in inebriated condition and in wrong directions violating traffic rules, using mobile phones while on the wheel are some of the prime causes of rising traffic-related accidents.
 
Minister Mr.Behera also sought cooperation from the officials, members of the Safety Council and NGOs working in the field in bringing down the death rate and reduce number of road accidents.
 
Speaking in the meeting, Twin City Police Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty said 21 ‘black spots’ have been identified between Pitapalli and Jagatpur on the Cuttack-Bhubaneswar State Highway.
 
The officials and Council members laid stress on putting signage on these black spots, ensuring that heavy vehicles plying on this route are not overloaded, adopting methods in the Mumbai-Pune NH style to check accidents in Khordha-Chandikhol route and implementation of Student Traffic Volunteers system in all district headquarters in the State.
