Every day, hundreds of innocent lives are lost in road accidents in metropolitan cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. Take Delhi as example. In the last couple of decades, millions of people came to Delhi in search for better occupational opportunities. The city witnessed mammoth sized constructions to provide for the housing as well as the infrastructural needs of this ever-growing population. Flyovers were constructed. Roads were made to connect the far lying parts of the city. But, along with this large scale development several issues, like traffic and road accidents also sprung up. Every day, countless people succumb to road injuries; this is something that must be looked into. The concerned authorities are doing their bit; are we? We talked to the road-safety experts, and here are 3 road safety products/practices that can help you stay safe when driving in the capital. 1. Always wear the seat belts Make it a habit. Never drive your car without the seat belts. If you drive a two wheeler, make sure you drive only after wearing a helmet. You can buy these road safety products – antiglare screens, parking mirrors, etc. – online or in a brick-and-mortar shop. Make your family and/or friends also wear the seat belts or helmets. 2. Never zig-zag on the road Make sure you drive in your lane, and do not zig-zag when driving; zig-zagging can create confusion, and lead to a road accident. Please remember roads are not the places to test your driving skills. So, you better familiar yourself with the rules of the roads, and get driving license from the concerned authority. 3. Don’t cross the set-limits It’s okay to reach late to your office, but it’s not okay to drive the car as if you are on a highway. One small mistake can cost you your life. Last, but not the least, there are traffic safety products – antiglare screens, parking mirrors, etc. – which you should have with you so that you never fall prey to a road accident. You can get these products delivered at your home if you order for them online. You can even go to a local shop for these products. The only thing that you should be sure about is the quality of products that you are buying. Never buy an inferior-quality product just because you will save a few bucks on the purchase. It’s for your life, so you better do not mind paying a little extra for quality traffic safety products.
