Question 2.
It is a Road Safety Week at a school. One of the students is requested to give a short speech on road safety. Write a speech stressing the importance of road safety and making some practical suggestions for students.

Write your speech in not more than 120 words.
Respected Principal, Teachers and my dear friends, lam very happy to say that our College . has taken some steps towards creating awareness in the society about traffic rules and their necessity. Today we read in newspapers many people dying in road accidents. To highlight this, we are celebrating ‘Road safety week’. One of the main causes of accidents is the rapid increase in traffic and people ignoring traffic rules. We neglect traffic rules and jump the signals, do not follow lane discipline and always try to overtake.

Another reason for road accidents is using mobile phones while driving and drunken driving. To avoid accidents, we must follow traffic rules very strictly and should take the oath that we would not use mobiles while driving and must not drive rashly to overtake. Even our traffic system should be improved.

Thank you.
