Speech on Road Safety
Speech – 1
good morning friends!
Today I stand here in front of you as your class teacher to deliver a speech on road safety. You are no longer a little kid who doesn’t know the safety rules when walking on the street. There is a very good saying, “It is better to be safe than sorry”. Although we all forget this thing and sometimes become careless due to which we endanger our life.
Do we not listen to the news of people who become victims of road accidents or encounters on the road? Unfortunately some die on the spot and some suffer serious injuries which they have to bear for the rest of their lives. Vehicle accidents have become a major reason behind the increase in the death rate in our country and this is also happening when the government is implementing road safety measures.
Many of you may not know that Abu Dhabi is the place which is notorious for having the highest rate of road deaths in the world. There are 38 deaths on an average every month due to fatal injuries caused by road traffic, mainly involving 0 to 14-year-olds.
Hence it attests to the fact that all the people especially the pedestrians should be alert and follow the safety rules while walking on the road. Pedestrian is mainly responsible for road accident as it happens when he carelessly ignores traffic signals or does not walk carefully on crosswalks leading to injuries. So I request all of you to be alert and not be in a hurry while walking on the road. Apart from this many people also usually obstruct the normal flow of traffic. Please note that this can prove to be very dangerous for one’s life so should be avoided. Always use zebra crossings to walk on the road and keep your eyes and ears open to hear sounds from all around.
If you are going to travel via public transport and if it is a bus then patiently wait for the bus to stop and then board it. Similarly, if you are exiting the bus, wait for it to stop properly and make sure that no other vehicle obstructs your way. Try to keep something with you so that the other driver can see the presence from afar. Never ignore the safety signs because whenever people ignore the safety signs they have to face serious road accidents.
If you are cycling on the road, be even more careful and make sure that your bicycle has a light fixture and that its brakes are in working condition. Second, avoid cycling on a busy road and try to use public transport.
Although there is no guarantee that through these preventive measures we will be able to avoid fatal cases of road accidents but we can definitely avoid this danger by being vigilant on the road and following all the safety rules. Students, always remember that there is no reset button in life so never be careless.
Hope you all remember my words and educate others about the importance of road safety rules.
Thank you !

Dear Society Members – Good morning to all of you from my side!
As the chairman of the organizing committee of our society, I have organized an event based on ‘Road Safety Week’ starting from today in which I want to discuss some important road safety measures for the members of our society. As we all read in the newspapers about the increasing cases of road accidents of today’s young generation, I hope that through this thing some awareness will definitely be created among the people and they will be more alert and careful while walking on the road. .
Please allow me to explain the reasons which lead to road accidents. Most of the accidents on the road occur mainly while driving at a speed exceeding the prescribed limit. Some drivers or vehicle owners drive unnecessarily and without strictly following the traffic rules. Apart from this, those who are professional drivers have to drive the whole day and sometimes with caution throughout the night, due to which they remain unfocused due to exhaustion and accidents that happen on the road. However, now our government has implemented road safety rules and there has been a significant decline in the incidents of road fights especially in cases of drunken driving.
Talking about the youth I have no qualms in admitting that they drive very irresponsibly and treat the road as their racing track leading to fatal road accidents. It becomes the responsibility of the parents to keep an eye on them and make them realize the importance of safety rules. Sometimes the vehicle breaks down and is not driven for several months or its brakes or clutch don’t work which leads to road accidents. In addition, road surfaces and potholes contribute to poor road conditions and increase road accidents.
Recently a man fell victim to an accident after dropping his child to school after falling into a pothole on the road. There is no dearth of such incidents in our country and it is high time that our government should pay attention to this negligence and take responsibility for the poor maintenance of public infrastructure. Apart from this, awareness campaigns should be run everywhere so that citizens of our country become serious about adopting road safety measures. To be fair, I would like to advise the government that it would be right to suspend the license of those involved in the cases of street fights. Criminals should be put in jail and severe punishment should be imposed on them.
Not using seat belts and helmets also contribute to such cases. According to a recent report, it is two-wheelers and trucks that cause about 40% of the deaths in our country. The number of road accidents in India is three times more than that of the developed countries of the world. So the only way to prevent mortality due to road accidents is to follow the rules of safety. Those who are driving should not exceed the speed limit of the vehicle so that the vehicle can be stopped in time if necessary or can see anything on the side of the road.

good morning ladies and gentlemen!
First of all, I would like to thank all the organizers of this festival and the management team for their efforts as well as those who have gathered here with us today. Today this social festival has been organized because the number of road accidents is increasing day by day and people need to be aware of this public issue.
More than 1.2 million people are killed due to road accidents and every year 200 to 500 million people worldwide suffer from serious injury and hence it has become a serious issue nowadays. According to a report known as the “Global Status Report on Road Safety”, road accidents will become the fifth leading cause of death by 2030. We should take the issue of road accidents seriously as most of the deaths are due to negligence and hence it is becoming a big controversy.
There can be many reasons for road accidents. The carelessness of the driver or any other person is the main cause of road accidents. People do not follow the traffic instructions and rules properly and hence result in serious injuries and deaths. We can usually see people who break traffic signals, drive drunk, don’t wear seat belts. We all know what kind of rules and regulations are there in India. No rules are strictly followed on the roads. There are hardly any places in India where those rules are followed. It is not only the duty of the government but people should also have some respect for the rules and the law.
In many places in India there is a lack of emergency services to treat the injured in the accident. There are many other reasons for road accidents. Getting a driving license has also become quite easy these days and it is dangerous because people who do not know how to drive properly can harm other people using the same road. Massive population growth, economic development, industrialization and motor driving are the roots of these accidents in the country. The more the country moves towards modernization, the more the use of vehicles will increase. The problem of road safety is related to every person who is using the roads.
Strict rules and regulations are needed for safety on the roads. Every person must follow the instructions and rules while driving or using the vehicle. These days bike craze is increasing among youth so they should follow the rules like wearing helmets and keeping the curb on the speed limit. While using the car we should use seat belts and follow the speed limit. Drunk driving or speeding is the main cause of accidents with cars.
Our life is in our hands and thus it is necessary to follow the rules and proper instructions while using the road. On this note, I would like to thank everyone here for gathering here and making this social event a success.

Respected Principal, Vice-Principal, Teachers and my classmates, you are all welcome in today’s special program.
In view of the coming Road Safety Week, this special program has been organized on this day. In this program we have been told many things related to road safety. Along with this, we were also told the importance of Road Safety Week. I would like to allow you to say two words on this subject to all of you. As we all know, in today’s modern times the number of vehicles on the roads is increasing rapidly and due to many carelessnesses of the people, ignorance of traffic rules and not following them, the number of accidents on the roads is increasing. is also increasing rapidly.
According to statistics, every year around 13 lakh people lose their lives in road accidents around the world. Out of which 1.5 lakh people die only in India, that is why this program of Road Safety Week is celebrated to bring awareness among the people. If we take care of small things during road travel, then many of these accidents can be avoided and it is the duty of every citizen of the country to be fully aware of the traffic rules and follow them always.
Along with this, parents should take care not to allow underage children to drive vehicles like motorcycles or cars. Drivers of four wheelers and their occupants must use seat belts. Similarly, two-wheeler drivers and riders must use helmets. If we pay attention to these simple standards of road safety, then our chances of surviving an accident increase by 80-85%.
Along with this, the government also needs to take strict steps regarding this subject, because many times driving licenses are issued in regional transport offices without investigation by taking only money. Which is a criminal act as well as creates a crisis on the lives of the people. This is because the chances of accidents are high when a non-mature driver drives the vehicle.
The meaning of road safety is not limited to drivers and riders only, but pedestrians and cyclists should also follow the rules of road safety equally. Many times it is seen that pedestrians start crossing the road without looking right or left or try to cross the road by crossing the divider in the middle of the road. Such actions also serve to increase road accidents. If we take care of these small things while traveling on the road, then many accidents can be avoided, which can save millions of lives. Along with this, the government should also launch an awareness campaign to promote the traffic rules among the people.
Now concluding my speech, I urge other participants to come on stage and take this program forward. Thank you all for listening so carefully to this speech of mine.
