Pictures tell a lot…Safety taking backseat

Above photos were taken today morning around 9 AM, near Godrej Chowk, Airport road, Mohali

I stopped on seeing something abnormal, as this vehicle was looked tilted, while approaching this part of road, on my way to office. On seeing me stoped and taking photographs of the vehicle, the driver & helper of the vehicle were looked baffled as their vehicle was carrying oversized material and may be overloaded. They thought that I was from some Inspection Authorities. After taking photos, I was successful in conveying the key learning that they will be big loser for only one instance when such act of overloading their vehicle accompanied by any mechanical failure while moving, may prove fatal and take toll on life/lives.

Hope you will discourage such acts and always stay alert from such vehicles on road. Take this real life incident as an eye opener for YOU and others around you so that any fatal accident be avoided.

GOVT. AUTHORITIES have to pay immediate attention and must play their role by taking strict action for such disobey of motor vehicle rules.

Seeking your kind cooperation to make it possible towards ZERO Accident….VM

    1. You are welcome, Verma ji. All of us must take care of safety of self as well as others around us. Saving money and time at the cost of safety on road is dangerous and may prove fatal for life / lives. Many breadwinner had lost their lives in such cost/time cutting incidents, previously.
      Thank you for your participative comments 🙏😊

  2. Its too dangerous as this vehicle can turn any moment due to overloaded material inside it and this can cause so much damage to fellow vehicles…. Everyone including concerned authorities should pay attention to this issue.

  3. You specified a point here which is absolutely right that such overloaded vehicles carry much risk for others. A limit should be fixed by the government to avoid overloading of vehicles and they should conduct regular investigations.

    1. Yes, you have emphasized the risk involved in moving overloaded vehicles on road. Yes, Enforcement of Motor vehicle rules should not be limited to issues of speed, red lights, wearing of safety gears etc. Rather, Govt. AUTHORITIES must enforce & check regularly that overload n oversized material are not carried by vehicles.

  5. Rules are there, even for overloading, but who follows? Government functionaries are also aware, but such instances give them opportunities to extort money. Despite paying extortion money at several points, truck owners find overloading a better option to earn extra money at the cost of precious lives. Thank you, Vikas for bringing up this issue.

    1. You have mentioned the thought process which exists amongst most of us. There could be many cases of extortion. But, safety lies in hand of individuals. Everyone must rise to the level of thinking that Safety comes first or Safety is the top priority. Extra money should not be earned at the cost of previous / innocent lives.
      Thank you, Kaushal ji🙏 for putting down your remarks and encouraging many others to be responsible/aware towards safety on road.
