Subject: Consequences of rash driving

Respected Sir

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the general public towards the rash and reckless driving by the youngsters in our city.

I find most of the youngsters having a personal vehicle nowadays - be it a car or a two-wheeler. Every day I see many of my college mates driving their way to college at a very high speed. When talked about the issue by other people, the ones possessing the vehicles never take it seriously. If a moderate speed is maintained, many accidents can be avoided very easily. The deadly consequences of high speed and rash driving include the possible death of anyone on the streets - humans and animals. The driver or/and the pedestrians might get severely injured due to overspeeding vehicles. 

Also, we are aware that rash driving is highly against traffic rules.

Therefore, it is my humble request to publish this and put a light on the consequences of rash driving of youngsters and how this might hurt them or others on the streets.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully

Subject: Issues faced due to rash driving on streets

Respected Sir/Madam, 

Today I write to you to draw your precious attention to an incident that happened to me a few weeks ago and to alert people to be more careful on the streets, through the columns of your prestigious newspaper.

I was on my way back home from the market with my hands all engaged with bags of stuff I bought from the market. While I was walking, I heard a loud sound of motors from behind me. Right when I was about to look back to investigate, the sound came closer and passed by a hairline distance from my body. It was a motorbike which was speeding. Amongst the hullabaloo, regaining from the momentary shock, I realised that one of my bags fell and all the vegetables were scattered on the street. Everyone was disgusted and they came forward to help me gather my stuff. Rash driving is a deadly killer. Not only it harms the one who is driving but harms the people around as well. Youngsters are mostly into high-speed driving because of their less knowledge about the consequences.

Hence, it is my humble request to publish this incident, asking the pedestrians to be more careful while walking and also highlight this issue to make the young bikers aware of the problems that elders or any other people of the surrounding face on the streets. 

Thanking you

Yours faithfully

Subject: Awareness to save stray animals from over speeding vehicles

Respected Sir

Today I am writing to you with the urge of drawing huge attention through the columns of your esteemed newspaper to the fact that rash driving is not only deadly for every person on the street but also might bring a tragic fate to the stray animals.

With no shelter to live in, the stray animals are quite helpless in the very first place. I become deeply saddened every time any stray animal loses its life to any speeding vehicle. According to me, every life matters and no one should pay for others' mistakes with life - not even animals. The rash drivers of bikes or cars should be more careful and considerate as it is their lives at stake, as well as others'. 

Hence, being an ardent animal lover, it is my humble request to publish this issue and spread awareness. I would also like you to suggest that the drivers of motor vehicles maintain a moderate speed and keep the headlights of the cars or bikes turned on, in case the streets are dark.

Thanking you 

Yours sincerely
Jasmin Khanna

Subject: Accident because of an over-speeding car 

Respected Sir

I am writing to you to bring light to a recent crisis that my family is facing through the columns of your well-circulated newspaper.

With due respect, I wish to draw the kind attention of the concerned authority and general public through your esteemed daily, towards increasing incidents of road accidents and would like to mention what recently my uncle has faced. A young man was driving his four-wheeler, around 8:30 pm on 17th April. He was at a speed of 65 kilometres per hour and hit my uncle when he was about to cross the road after the signal turning red for vehicles. The traffic police immediately took action and admitted my uncle to a hospital nearby. They took the driver in custody. After reaching the hospital we got the news of my uncle suffering from various fractures and having many wounds that can take months to heal.

We also got to know that the person who was driving was drunk and hence driving rash as he lost all control. Our whole family is facing extreme dismay.

I hereby request you to publish this incident in your column and let the youngsters know the dark side of rash driving and how someone might have to pay with his/ her life if the vehicle is not controlled properly 

Thanking you

Yours obediently
Sridhar Patel
