The Editor,
Prabhat Khabar

Sub: Rash and reckless driving by teenagers.

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper I want to draw the kind attention of the people, parents and the concerned authority towards the rash and reckless driving by teenagers increased the number of road accidents. Teenagers know that no strict action can be taken against them so they drive cars and ride motorcycle fearlessly. They do not care any low and traffic rules. The do not care the speed limits too. It seems, they neither care for their own lives nor others. The news about the road accidents caused due to rash driving is common these days.

Enforcing speed limits within the city is necessary and so is stricter norms for issue of license. Therefore, whoever violates the rules, must be fined heavily. The problem can be easily dealt with by spreading awareness about the issue as much as possible and also by taking timely action. Hence, I wish the authorities make a note of the situation and act upon it immediately. Looking forward to see positive changes.
Thank you.

Yours sincerely
