An Interview on road safety with Dr. Babita Nihal, CEO of G Cabs.
Gurgaon Traffic Police is trying its best to sensitize people on road safety measures. Drunk driving is one of the challenges the police has taken up. They are trying to get people to use alternative means after a late night party or a get together. Thus in order to understand the issue better and how safe the alternative means are, we have talked to Dr. Babita Nihal, CEO G Cabs Gurgaon.

Question: Do you think that drinking and driving is menace in Gurgaon?

Dr. Babita Nihal: Of course, it is a menace and very dangerous not only for the person who is driving but also for others on the road, since most of the road accidents take place under the influence of alcohol. This is not only about Gurgaon but all across India and there should not be drinking & driving.

Question: What is the best possible way to make sure that people don't drink and drive?

Dr. Babita Nihal: Although penalties on drunk driving are severe, but it should be 100 percent implemented. Also it is a moral responsibility of an individual not to drive after drinking. Moreover, once you are drunk do not drive a car rather park your car and hire a taxi.

Question: What kind of steps do you take to ensure that your drivers do not drink and drive?

Dr. Babita Nihal: We have a random check up by breath analyzer to ensure no driver is drinking on duty. Additionally, there are severe penalties on drivers if they are caught in drinking and driving.

Question: In case one of your drivers is caught drinking and driving, what steps do you take to ensure that they do not repeat it?

Dr. Babita Nihal: We issue a disciplinary card to the driver, which put him to the training again on safe driving technique, and bar him from driving for some days, if it’s a first complaint.

Question: In spite of a high awareness level about the evils of drinking and driving, why do you think that people still resort to it?

Dr. Babita Nihal: There are multiple reason of it- some people are addicted to alcohol, some people don’t care about traffic rules and safety measures, which again is a menace for the society. We should keep educating each and every individual to make them aware about their moral responsibility towards the society.

Question: Do you think that the taxi facility is enough to curb the menace?

Dr. Babita Nihal: It’s a good way to escape the chances of accident on road and also it can minimize the traffic on road, usually on New year celebration or other parties. Companies or hotels provide drop off facilities to their customers & people opt for this facility to curb the road mishap.
