A special rally was organized by Pathway, a non-governmental development organization, to highlight the significance of the day. In this rally, there was spontaneous participation of people from all walks of life as well as third gender community. The awareness rally started in front of Pathway's head office and circled around different areas of Mirpur-10 to 14 main roads.

The rickshaw is a three wheeler non-motorised vehicle, and a very common mode of transportation in Bangladesh. Pullers of these vehicles are mostly illiterate, untrained and unaware of traffic rules.

Media Coverage

Pathway Road Safety Activities
Road accident deaths have become very common today. The main cause of road accidents on roads is traffic law rules and mismanagement in the safety of public movement. We always hear in the news that accidents have occurred due to wrong driving, speeding, drug driving, etc. Bus services in all districts of Bangladesh including Dhaka are highly uncontrolled. As a result, road death is increasing day by day. Disasters are not only humanitarian but also economic. Many families are losing their only man who is in earnable after being hit by a road accident. Many students lose their dreams and parents lost their children. Road accidents are taking away the dreams of many young men and young people. Chaos, corruption, and irregularities in the road and transport sector swell edited the country's roads. This led to an unsafe road system caused by untrained drivers and chaotic traffic systems. As a result of this unsafe road system, numerous people lost their lives in road accidents. The common people of our country cross the road in violation of traffic laws. Foot over bridge does not use. Overbridge is occupied by hawkers and beggars. There is a kind of fear among pedestrians. School-going children are reluctant to use over bridges. Foot over bridge occupied by hawkers for not using over a bridge. At night, there are snatchers on the foot over the bridge. So ordinary pedestrians cross the road at the risk of life. Road safety problems like many other developing countries are an emerging challenging problem in Bangladesh. Road accidents have declined in many developed countries in the world using scientific, realistic policies.
The number of people killed in road accidents worldwide is estimated to be around 1.3 million and at least 50 million people are injured. The issue of road safety has been a priority for a long time. Pathway has been working for a long time to want safe roads. Because of the slogan of drivers following pedestrian traffic laws, traffic signs, traffic laws have been imparting health training to professional and amateur drivers. In addition to training drivers to prevent road accidents, he has undertaken several activities including awareness dramas, dramas, meetings, seminars. The main reason for road accidents in our country is the lack of trained skilled drivers. Pathway has established a training center called "Pathway Driving Training School" approved by the Government of Bangladesh to create skilled drivers. With training from here, driving with a reputation at home and abroad plays a role in preventing road accidents. Helpless, poor, disadvantaged people, as well as working women, are given free training in special courses, and driving license fees and employment are provided. In 2018, the young society was at the forefront of safe road movements. At this time, on July 29, 2018, two students of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment College, Diya, and Rajiv were brutally killed in a two-bus race. The news spread on social media the night after the road accident, students from school colleges and public-private universities across the country went on a protest. After independence, its became a big student movement across the country and this movement was a safe road movement for all of us. Although this movement is very old. Roads death is nothing old in this country. In Bangladesh, many talented students to intellectuals were killed in road accidents. In fact, in such a dangerous road country, all people risk their lives when they go out on the road in some way or the other. So we can assume that none of us on the road is out of fear. So we are all at risk. Everyone wants the road to be completely free from risk, safe roads should be implemented. However, we are extremely reluctant to follow the rules and regulations through which our roads are supposed to be safe. It should be remembered that we are more or less responsible for our situation today and that all the rules and regulations are done to protect us all. There is no alternative to collective awareness from each of us to follow discipline equally and to implement discipline in terms of administration to restore order. The road system for inter-district and highway transport in Bangladesh is very delicate. Most roads do not have markings and road dividers. As a result, there is a kind of indifference among drivers as well. They do not drive according to the specific lane of the road while driving. Road accidents occurred by driving at high speed outside the national speed limit scarcity of emergency lanes and traffic lanes on the road. CNG drivers use roads without training. The motorcyclist is using the road without any training. Accidents are more common in road use without knowing traffic laws and regulations. Many of the long-distance buses and truck drivers do not have a certificate to drive heavy vehicles. Drivers need to be trained well and use roads knowing traffic laws. Our economic wheels in their hands.Traders in our country hand over assets to drivers. This road accident is destroying resources. It is important to provide refreshment training to drivers and counseling training on health issues. Drivers and passengers on the highway should have rest rooms. At the same time, the issue of passenger has to be kept in mind. Arrangements should be made to the washroom for those who travel in long-distance buses. Because if they hold urine for a long time, their health will be at risk. We always live at the risk of death due to road mismanagement. To be an ideal driver, he needs to have some qualities inside him. He cannot be illiterate at first. He must know the minimum signature. He needs to be able to read Bengali and English. Drivers who have good educational qualifications have a better performance. It is generally believed that a driver is a good driver if he is driving at a high speed unless he knows the road usage rules/traffic laws. As an ideal driver, one must know the various road usage rules/traffic rules. When a driver drives, he must be aware of his own, passengers and pedestrians. Forgetting a little of that, drivers, passengers, pedestrians can get into accidents. The driver must drive patiently. Because in other words there is "patience is a great quality". You can't drive with a competitive mindset. The driver of the front vehicle can behave in any way while driving on the road. You have to drive patiently without any ridicule from him. The driver must complete a confident attitude. Because Bangladesh is a country of mixed traffic. If he loses his confidence here, he will be hit by a road accident. Driving for a long time without a pause does not keep them mentally healthy resulting in road accidents. Drivers, passengers and pedestrians all have a role to play in keeping the roads safe. As pedestrians, it is our responsibility to cross the road with zebra crossings/foot over bridges/underpasses, targeting the right-left while crossing the road. Not using mobile phones and headphones while crossing the road. As a passenger, the vehicle cannot be lifted without putting hands, heads out of the window, and without a scheduled bus stop. At the same time, if the driver drives according to certain rules, road accidents in our country will be reduced to a great extent. Bangladesh ranks fourth in road accidents in the world. On average, 18 people die in road accidents every day in Bangladesh. This is mainly because a registered organization drives on the road with a license from BRTA without training on driving. As a result, you, me, we all don't escape road accidents today. The number of registered vehicles in Bangladesh is 3498,620. On the contrary, there are 18,69,816 licensed drivers. Then you are all on the road at the risk of life by relying on untrained/unlicensed drivers. As a result, some fresh lives are being added to the road death day by day. As a result, our family member is dying in a road accident.
