Read and translate the text.
1. According to police records at least one person is killed daily on Delhi roads in India. Every year several thousand people are killed on the roads in Great Britain. Every year between one and two hundred thousand people are injured. These people are killed or injured in road accidents.
2. If you are in England and if you listen to the 8 o'clock news from the radio, you will often hear news of road accidents. You may hear something like this:
"On Monday evening, at about twenty minutes to ten a cyclist was knocked down by a car in High Street. The cyclist has since died from I his injuries. Will anyone who saw the accident please telephone New Scotland Yard."
3. Great attention is being paid to the problem of road safety in all countries. Accidents often happen if people don't obey the rules hat help to make the road safe. If everybody obeys the rules, the roads rill be much safer. How can we make the roads safer? Here are some examples of how accidents happened.
4. The young woman was out shopping. She had a shopping basket on her left arm. She was ready to go home. She saw her bus stopping on the other side of the street. She forgot the safety rules. She was in a hurry, so she ran out into the street. She wanted to get across quickly and catch her bus. At that moment the car hit her and knocked her down. The woman was taken to hospital. The doctors did everything that was possible, but she died three hours later. It was the woman's fault. She did not obey the traffic rules.
5. The next story is about the boy who was riding a bicycle. Today he has only one leg and he will never ride a bicycle again. This accident took place in a busy shopping centre. The boy was riding a bicycle carrying a heavy box under his right arm. It was wrong thing to do. The boy had only one hand to control his bicycle. The boy was not killed, he was taken to hospital and the doctors had to cut his right leg off. It was the boy's fault. It was not the fault of the driver of the car.
6. In Great Britain traffic keeps to the left: cars, motor-vans, buses and cyclists must all keep to the left side of the road. In the USSR as well as in most countries traffic keeps to the right.
7. Before crossing the road, stop and look both ways. Then if you consider that the road is clear, that there is nothing coming it is safe to cross the road. If you see that small children or very old people are waiting to cross the road, you are to help them to cross the road in safety. We must teach children to cross the road safely. We must always give them a good example. Small children must not play in the streets.
8. There are many things that drivers can do to make the road safe. But unfortunately they do not always obey the traffic rules. For example, in Delhi it is quite normal for a driver at night to see a car going along the wrong side of a divided road straight at him. The taxi-drivers often horrify people passing at full speed turning into another road seconds before an oncoming bus. Most cyclists in Delhi do not obey the traffic rules. Very often they pass the red traffic lights as if they did not see them at all. When a driver goes past such a cyclist he shouts at him: "Did you say good-buy to your wife this morning for good?" Another asks: "What do you think, this is your father's road?"
9. The drivers must obey traffic rules. They must be careful at crossroads. They must drive slowly when turning into another road. A driver must not drive if he is tired or ill. A man who drives after drinking beer or wine is usually a dangerous driver. His own and the life of others may be in danger. So if you are a driver or going to become one, do not forget about all these things.
