Letters-25: "Road Accidents caused by Juveniles"

The number of road accidents caused by under-aged and unlicensed youngsters behind the wheel is on the rise. Often, the victims are too poor to pursue medical treatment, much less, compensation. The juvenile culprits hail from wealthy families and employ the best legal brains to go scot-free.

Renuka Choudhary’s suggestion that parents of such children should be made accountable is worth consideration. Parents should allow their children to handle cars only after satisfying themselves that they are capable of controlling them. – C.N.N.Nair, Mumbai.
