One thought on “First International Conference on Road Safety Concluded

  1. Its very nice and encouraging to hold such kind of seminars / conferences, where number of dignitaries from concerned and / or non concerned walks of life come and deliver great speeches to impress upon the people and unfortunately people also (in most of the cases) believe in such kind of speeches so much by taking it on face value and they start assuming that henceforth relevant problem(s) shall be resolved / reduced / eliminated but reality is entirely different as neither the people from audience remember what was spoken about nor the concerned and responsible authorities on the subject take it in its desired spirit / seriousness to kick start the implementation.

    I understand that the relevant conference was held in May,11, about 6 months ago, has any one or any agency taken stock of the ground reality to evolve any mechanism by which it can be felt by all and sundry that yes something is being done seriously, people at grass root level are involved and eventually some sign of self-discipline among people has started percolating?

    I shall be happy to get a real feedback.

    My views are in general for most of such conferences / seminars, not particularly for this one only.

    Thanks
