Ludhiana: Under age students of school are still coming on a vehicle which is going rampant at different city schools. However, many accidents took place due to this issue as there is no check by the authorities and school management regarding this issue. However, parents are also responsible for this menace going rampant as school authorities should also look into the matter and should not allow the students to come to school on vehicles.
The strength of such students is increasing day by day. The parking outside the schools itself speaks. The students nowadays are least interested in preferring to choose the school vans to go to the school and more interested to go by their own even by not having the necessary papers or license. The main problem is that these students are even encouraged by their parents to go on their own bikes to go to school.
However, on being contacted, school authorities regarding this issue most of them claimed that they have directed the students on intervals that underage students are not allowed coming on vehicles to schools. However, students are not allowed to park their vehicles inside the school though underage students park their vehicles outside the school premises which is a major problem of traffic snarls. They should be first stopped by their parents to not to go school by their own two wheelers and then the second responsibility is of the school authorities to stop them. The students whenever are asked by the teachers that why they do not choose the school vans, they always used to say that their parents allow them to go on it.
According to Rahul Verma, traffic expert, this is sheer violation on part of students that are driving vehicles without having license.
“We traffic experts would go to juvenile court and request the magistrate to call the parents of the violators so that this violation would not occur in future” claimed Rahul Verma.
He further claimed that parents are also the culprits in this case as they encourage their children by providing high end vehicles.
They used to say that their kids have to go for tuitions after their school, so they have to be self dependent that is why they allow their kids to prefer their two wheelers. City schools should be strict towards such activities as there are more cases of accidents of underage students because they are not even properly trained about riding a two wheeler. They are more interested about flaunting their vehicles and least interested about following the traffic rules.
