SPEED BREAKER – know its purpose, else…

Road from Landran to Mohali
Speed breaker on left half width of road
Speed breaker on right half width of road

Above photos were taken around a road coming out from a big residential colony, meeting on Sirhind Mohali road, near Landran Chowk. The speed breakers have been installed in staggered way, here.

First 3 photos have been taken today morning to make the accident (shown by last 2 photos) happened around 2 weeks ago on same section of road, understand well. You must notice here that the person who already know about this speed breaker, try to drive his/her vehicle bypassing it (being of half width)

This is the 101st post towards zero accident which clearly shows that every road user must respect the intended purpose of speed breaker installed/made on our road which asks the road user to slow down vehicle for keeping him/her safe at accident prone area of the road. If we continue to make fool of ourselves by ignoring them, they would continue be one of the reasons causing many fatalities on road. The victim of accidents due to not slowing down the speed of vehicles or changing path to avoid these breakers may be the only bread earner of any family or he/she may be loving child of any family, etc.

Hope YOU will understand and will sincerely respect speed breakers on road and will drive your vehicle honestly while crossing road sections having speed breakers.

Govt. authorities must categorize / standardize speed breakers duly painted with color as per requisite norms. They also need to take stern action on those persons driving their vehicles who will be defaulters on this account.

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

  3. One should not ignore the purpose of speed breakers in any case. Accident will only be minimised when we, as road users, will co-operate with government safety norms.

  5. Speed Breakers must be put by authorities too by taking care of its height and painted them well so that they could be seen to every one at safe distance.

    1. It will definitely be good if Authorities do their part with due diligence. Till they do the rectification, all of us need to be aware and not to change lane on road only to bypass any speed breaker. Thank you Vivek for participative comments๐Ÿ™


  6. This is a beautiful post, VM, as I too feel that broken speed breakers may cause accident rather than saving it, as people tend to pass through broken parts. In fact, some mischievous persons deliberately cut a part of speed breaker for smooth driving. This is a misconceived idea that must be discouraged by all.

    1. You have mentioned it well that such speed breakers can cause accidents rather than saving people. Authorities must keep a check on unauthorized modifications and rectify same. They should penalise the mischievous elements, doing such stuff. Thank you, Kaushal ji for your active participation๐Ÿ™

  7. Hi friend,

    Speed breakers helps in maintaining a balanced speed for safe travelling.

    I have seen people ignoring or wrongly treating speed breakers, which may give serious outcomes.

    It’s important to inform and educate people about road safety, as city traffic is massively increasing day by day.

    Thank you sharing the post.๐Ÿ™‚
