Mumbai: In Maharashtra, about 14 thousand deaths are happening annually due to road accidents. In terms of death in road accidents, Maharashtra is at number three in the country, while Uttar Pradesh is at number one and Tamil Nadu is at number two. At present, the Samruddhi Highway is at the forefront of road accidents in Maharashtra, where around 360 road accidents have taken place in four months. Surprisingly, road hypnosis is being told as one of the reasons for road accidents.
According to the Highway Police, the main reason for road accidents is the negligence of the drivers, over speeding and tire burst. ADG of Maharashtra Highway Police, Ravindrakumar Singal said that Maharashtra is the state that links South and North, so many vehicles from here go down to South or come up from there, so there is a huge number of accidents in the morning. Just yesterday, 4 people died in an accident, that too in the morning. We are seeing that there have been some cases of tire bursts due to over speeding or falling asleep or during day time.
Roads are being made good so that people can reach on time. But it is also suffering its consequences. Accidents are also increasing. Especially we are on the Samruddhi Mahamarg… which is the first phase from Mumbai to Nagpur. More than 360 road accidents have happened on it and 39 people have died. There are many reasons for this. One of the reasons is street hypnosis.

Know the reason for the accidents from the expert
Psychiatrist Dr. Sagar Mundra said that new highways are being built. There are four lanes on one side. There are four lanes on the other side as well. The road is very dazzling. There is no hindrance. No creature is going to come in between. No two wheeler is going to come. No one is going to come from the opposite side and many empty roads are available, in such a situation the driver feels that the road is empty and there is no obstacle, so I will drive in a relaxed manner. I can drive the car. At such times the drivers become very relaxed. We make mistakes in seconds and crash, because the speed is also very high.
CM appeals to drive slowly
Street hypnosis is also known as White Line Fever. The white stripe on the road acts as a pendulum on the driver’s mind, due to which there is a danger of falling asleep. That’s why experts say that to keep the driver active on such roads, one should listen to songs… keep talking to him. Meanwhile, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis while inaugurating the second phase of Samruddhi Mahamarg from Igatpuri to Shirdi said that even though the highway is built for speed. But most of our vehicles are not capable of running even at a speed of 120 km per hour. So drive slowly.
Maharashtra’s Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that “I request you all..Keep your speed low here. Until the intelligent traffic management system is installed. Because we have seen between two o’clock in the night and 5 in the morning because this highway It is straight. That’s why there is a possibility of blinking by walking straight. That’s why people should take care.
