Every year, more than 5 lakh road accidents happen in our country. Out of this 5 lacks, more than 1.5 lakh people die. To counter these, government needs to take some steps to significantly reduce the increasing accidents in the country.

All the four wheeler drivers while driving their car on the roads on India are expected to put on their seat belt. Not only the drivers, but everyone else sitting in the car must also put their seat belt on. This is a traffic rule laid by law and must be followed.

The transport wing of the government set up not only the rule of putting on our seat belts, but also many other important traffic rules. These rules are listed as the Indian Road rules under the ‘Rules of the Road Regulation’ which was formulated in July 1989. The government is quite stringent on following these laws. But many of us in spite of knowing the rule, tend to overlook them and cause the traffic violation. But any violation of a traffic rule is considered as a serious offence in the eyes of law and the concerned authority or traffic police has full authority to inflict the suitable punishment as per law. The cops are authorized to levy the fine on the defaulters as per the Motor Vehicle Act. One of the important traffic rule which is mostly abused and not followed is driving with seat belt on.
