In a recent report released by the state transport department, Ranchi emerges as the most notorious city in Jharkhand for disregarding traffic rules. The alarming data from the e-challan system shows that Ranchi alone accounted for a staggering 70% of the total traffic violations recorded in the state over the past six months. The prevailing offenses, such as overspeeding and jumping red lights, pose a grave threat to road safety and demand immediate attention.
Since the introduction of the e-challan system in January this year, Jharkhand has witnessed a disturbing 40% surge in traffic violations. The e-challan system, equipped with cameras and sensors at strategic locations, was designed to streamline compliance and combat corruption. However, the report highlights the troubling reality that numerous drivers continue to flout the rules, putting innocent lives at risk.
The safety of our roads should be a collective responsibility, and it is imperative that the authorities and citizens work together to create a safer environment. Strict enforcement of traffic rules, public awareness campaigns, and investment in road infrastructure are key steps to curbing this alarming trend.
Let us unite to bring about positive change and foster a culture of responsible driving. Together, we can make our streets safer and protect the lives of every road user in Jharkhand. Remember, safety starts with each one of us
