Why wait for Odd Even rule everywhere?
Since the dawn of 2016, one unique thing entered Indian road transport scenario – the Odd-Even rule. You all know the rule. You all know why it came into being. One simple reason, rising pollution and increasing traffic. But one question needs an honest answer from within – do we really need to wait for a political order to check city pollution.
Ask the doctors, they will tell u a list as long as the Eiffel Tower of Paris, about the ill effects of pollution on you, your family and especially your kids. The same kids whom you love so much and take care that nothing harmful ever get inside their body. But what about the air pollutants. Every year there is a steep rise in Bronchial asthma, skin allergies and premature ageing all attributable to air pollutants.
I know, you worked hard for your money and you deserve a luxurious car. But don’t we owe something to the environment which has been brought to the brink of being unsustainable.
Mumbai roads, the feeders for Mumbai’s fast moving life is getting choked by the teeming and ever increasing number of vehicles running. If the arteries will get blocked the city will get a heart attack. And that will be very very bad i can tell you.
So what we can do is simple. We take our cars on limited number of days. Rest of the days we use LiftO and share a fellow professional’s ride. We pay him a fraction of price of actual running cost involved. On other days we can reverse this and offer a ride to some like minded buddy and get a fraction of our cost back. Not only we will save on fuel expenses, but also we will get a congestion free roads, greener and cleaner air. Time saved and longevity of your machine are just the Diwali bonuses.
