Sub.: Regarding reckless driving by youngsters in our area.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a resident of _______ locality, Ward no. ___, Village: ______, District: _______, Pin: _______. Regretfully, I wish to bring to your kind attention about the issue of rising calamities on the roads in our locality due to rash driving by many youngsters and some irresponsible drivers of heavy vehicles. Nobody seems to have any respect for traffic rules; neither have they wished to follow them.

In the recent past, the number of road accidents has gone up significantly here. This is happening especially because of reckless driving. Recently, on (Date), a young guy riding his bike at a very high speed hit an old man, which broke the legs of the old man and the guy was severely injured. This incident happened on _____ road on the way to ____ area. Likewise, there are many hit and run cases happening, which is creating a scary situation for kids, elderly people, pedestrians, drivers and other people in general. The culprits are fleeing the crime scene unpunished.

The local residents have complained about this matter to the local police several times. However, they have not shown any keen interest in controlling the situation; neither has taken any major action to combat the problem. There is no traffic police appointed to keep a watch on the road nor are there any traffic lights installed. This is posing a major risk on the lives of the people using the roads.

Therefore, I would kindly request your goodself to publish this matter in your esteemed newspaper so that it draws the attention of the concerned statutory authorities and general public. Please help us in spreading awareness, punishing the culprits and saving the lives of many innocent people. Your kind help is highly appreciated.

Thanking you,
Yours truly,
