Jaipur: A man died on the spot when he rammed his bike into a bus from rear as the vehicle had applied brakes suddenly on the Jaipur-Ajmer Road on Monday. However, the pillion rider escaped unhurt.
The victim has been identified as Ramesh Chandra (37), who was a labourer, and was on his way to Bais Goddam for work. His body was handed over to his family after the post-mortem.
“The accident happened around 9.030 am on Monday when Chandra and his colleague were on their way to work. They probably were speeding and when the bus suddenly applied brakes, Chandra could not control the bike and hit the bus from behind, leading to his death on the spot. We are investigating but the fault lies in both the drivers. Speed and sudden braking ended Chandra’s life,” added an official of the accident police station (south)
Although both the riders were wearing helmets, it was only Chandra who sustained fatal injuries. “The pillion rider got away unscathed. The main reasons for the accidents are usually speeding and not following traffic rules. In this case, the bus suddenly turned and came in front of the bike,” added the official.
While traffic police has been running a campaign and penalizing hundreds of violators on every day, senior officials claimed that it is also the responsibility of the citizens to be cautious and follow traffic rules. On Saturday and Sunday, traffic police took action against 200 drivers for drunk driving under 185 MV Act. The licences of these violators can be suspended for three months. Out of the 200 violators, maximum numbers were those riding two-wheelers and cops seized 138 bikes/scooters.
