Safe Journey Campaign Nepal

According to the statistical data published by WHO, road accident causes death every six seconds worldwide. On that basis, it can be deduced that six people lose their life in accident every day in Nepal. Now, two percent of death is caused by road accident. If road accident increases in the same ratio, eighty percent of the death will be caused by road accident in seven years time or till 2020 A.D. Safe Journey Campaign, Nepal was established with the belief and feeling that we should also contribute from nongovernmental sector to end this horrible situation.

Since after its establishment, Safe Journey Campaign, Nepal has been conducting many campaigns to lessen accident for the safe journey of passengers’ especially in Lumbini zone and nearby areas. It is due to untiring effort and polite request of the Campaign, transport entrepreneurs of this area are regularly conducting many trainings on rules and codes of driving to the workers affiliated to their organization. They are also conducting training programmes to their workers on how they should deal with the passengers. In such trainings, members of the organization are providing trainings voluntarily. The main objective of the organization is to conduct many constructive programs for the reduction of road accidents so that no one has to face untimely death due to road accidents.

Besides trainings and seminars, the organization is also conducting many awareness programmes to school students and youth club members on how we can use road safely for the reduction of accident so that everyone would be aware and careful before coming to the road, and so that they would not become the news/victims of road accident.

The organization is running its programmes and activities voluntarily in its own effort in spite of knowing the fact that it is almost impossible, and very difficult effort to reduce accidents from the small contribution made by the members, and without the co-operation of donor organizations. In this reference, the organization has continuously been organizing discussions on how we can make the section of Siddhartha Highway from Siddhababa to Dhovan safe, and recently proposed an alternative, which has been submitted to the honourable Chair Person of the Cabinet on 14 Asad in the presence of the former ministers Bishnu Paudel and Balkrishna Khand, who are devoted to the development of the area. Besides, a passenger information center is running at the Lumbini Bus Terminal, Butwal from the financial contribution of its members’ pocket money. That center has played a vital role for the passengers to solve their problems, and it has also played the role of mediator to solve and to facilitate the misunderstanding and conflict created between the transportation entrepreneurs or workers and the passengers.

Naturally/Instinctively, we do not pay as much concern to the loss of property as to the loss of human life in road accidents. But there is a bitter fact in front of us that the state loses the property of more than Rs. four billion a year because of road accidents, and this fact has always been overshadowed. Since the loss of human life is of prime concern for all of us, no one pays concern to the property loss. Until some years ago, transportation sector had been assailed by the relatives of the dead persons after the accident. There are so many cases of damage and fire of vehicles during a single road accident.

There have been many road accidents every day, and it has caused a great loss of human life and property but, except in the fit of anger, even the victims do not concern in the minimization of road accidents in the latter days. They do not want to be reminded of the accident after they get financial compensation as they think that it will be traumatic to them. In this situation, there is no other way than wishing there be no accident. Safe Journey Campaign, Nepal is trying its best to address the feelings of the victims of road accidents but the concerned authorities are maintaining their indifference to the problems. Established in the initiative of the youth of Butwal, Safe Journey Campaign, Nepal is running many services and awareness programmes on its own from the financial support of its members and local organizations. The data of the WHO has shown that more deaths are caused due to the lack of timely medical service or treatment after the accident than by accidents themselves. Considering this reality, the organization is preparing to establish Service Fund for the Victims of Road Accidents for the immediate treatment of the victims of road accidents. In addition to this, the organization is running a digital magazine about the information of transportation sector, the problems, complaints, experiences, programmes and activities of transportation entrepreneurs and workers, the experience of passengers during the journey along with the views of transportation related agencies and other concerned authorities.
