Pedestrians at Fault

A Photo Feature by SK Enamul Haq

Fatalities in road accidents are rising, persistently. Flawed engineering of roads and highways and institutional corruption are often cited as reasons behind most accidents. Even our city streets have become perilous for commuters and pedestrians. However, while institutional negligence is mostly responsible for these fatalities, we often forget the roles we ourselves play in triggering accidents, the negligence we show and the blunders we make as passengers and pedestrians. This photo feature brings out how pedestrians put their lives at risks, violating traffic rules.
