And if you are on a two-wheeler then, unless it is most essential, don't carry your wife and child along on the pillion too.  This advice should particularly be followed at night because then it is difficult to  maintain balance on jerky, submerged roads with wife and child sitting behind. In day time it may be all right to do so. But at night it could be dangerous.

Moreover, there is no check on the behaviour of any moving vehicle. So if you are going to a wedding reception with your wife on a scooter and a heavy vehicle passes by, splashing dirty, cowdung infested water on you, you may not feel very embarrassed but your wife will. She will force you to return so that she may be able to change her attire.

But I know few take such tips seriously. The urgency of the moment matters more to them than the necessity of observing safety norms. But still I hope at least some will pay heed and avoid taking any risk. It is better to avoid fast drive and retain your smile than to return with a sob from the hospital. An ounce of precaution is better than a tonne of cure.
To the traffic cops  I would like to advise that they should ensure one thing in particular. Tempos going to or returning from Mela  should not be jam-packed with pilgrims.  Fix the limit on the number of passengers to be taken at a time. But this the cops may not do because they themselves at times force themselves on the tempo. Even when roads are dry, the  rashly-driven tempos have  turned turtle, Right now, in their bid to earn maximum from the Mela crowd, tempos  might run over-packed and may dash forward at high speed in order to make maximum trips to Sangam from the Railway station and back. Prevent accidents through speed or else one will be compelled to repeat the much quoted saying, ‘More haste, less speed’
