Urban Youth - becoming more and more contemptuous of the Law?
November 21, 2006 8:45am CST
Recent happenings in the capital cities and big towns of India indicate growing violations of the law by college & school students than occurred in previous years. For example, team-driving, in which teenagers (girls and boys together) go aroung in cars at night, cheering to go faster, the emphasis is on speed-driving. Recently such hazardous activity resuted in an accident in Bandra, Mumbai, in which 6 pavement sleepers were killed on the spot and 8 were hospitalised with serious injuries.What do you say?

Yes. There are plenty of such cases nowadays (obviously all are not reported). It is a fashion today. Easy money is one of the reasons that is enhancing this menace. The police is suposed to be more alert in our country. And driving licences should not be issued without valid reasons.

Yea, driving licenses should be issued strictly following driving 'Tests'. Such issuance of a DL should be under the orbit of 'file notings', for future reference in case of accidents (future). Secondly, party bashing after 10pm has become common, and youth return home in drunken revelry. This has taken innocent lives of footpath dwellers!

Instead of going on primary check-ups, it is better to take steps to avoid by increase in night petrol by the police. It should be more stringent way. Getting driving licences is very easy now a days. Coz Govt. needs revenue source. In metropolian cities night vigil by police is more demanding now. The mafia activities, speed driving, Dandhas will be monitored with special powers by the police in night patrol only. This makes Govt. may earn extra revenue and get benefitted by control over unscrupulous activities.
