Bhubaneswar, July 9:  It’s alarming that more than 4 lakh commercial vehicles in Odisha have been commuting in the road without fitness licence. 

Similarly, 40 lakh vehicles in Odisha lack insurance certificates. This poses risks to both vehicle owners and other road users.

Authorities need to address this issue promptly to ensure compliance with insurance regulations.

The rule that every 15-year-old vehicle must be renewed is essential for maintaining road safety standards.

It’s surprising that 20 lakh private vehicles in Odisha haven’t undergone renewal but continue to operate on the roads.

Strict enforcement and awareness campaigns are necessary to encourage vehicle owners to comply with renewal requirements.

Vehicles used for transporting students must adhere to safety norms, including fitness certificates and insurance.

The transport department should take proactive measures to ensure compliance among school and college vehicles.

Lack of awareness and staff shortages should not be excuses; safety should always be a priority, said road safety experts
