a practical handbook replete with ideas to reduce road accidents, carnage and congestion from highways to byways
HARROGATE, England (PRWEB) August 07, 2015
Today more than ever, road accidents contribute to a significant number of injuries and deaths all around the globe. According to the World Health Organization, about 1.24 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes. The increasing number of casualties is worrying such that author Malcolm Manby wrote “Thoughts and Squawks” (published by Xlibris UK), a practical handbook replete with ideas to reduce road accidents, carnage and congestion from highways to byways.
Seeing so many young people every day of the week losing their lives unnecessarily in road accidents prompted Manby to write this book. According to him, time is ripe and steps need to be taken to bring about a safer driving environment not only to the youth, but for the general public at large. His appeal for change — ideas, methods and implementation included — is controversial and different, but one that could ultimately reduce, if not eradicate, road casualties and deaths.
“Thoughts and Squawks” deals with the preventive aspects of road accidents. Raising standards, behaviour, attention and concentration to promote safety, it puts forward preventive interventions to replace what the author views as inefficient existing codes that govern road users; most especially those proposed by the government and motor manufacturers “who have continually blamed one another for the problems which they have brought about.”
With the prime intention of bringing about a superior service to take the place of old methods that only add to the large deficit road users are vulnerable to, this book is an essential read that can solve the problems of modern road traffic. “My knowledge and creative mind can help with new ideas to lead the way to benefit the whole population on this planet,” adds Manby.
