Smog in and around Delhi has now turned into a mass killer as its consequences are fatal. Days after Diwali, we are again witnessing the capital city covered by the smog blanket. To most of the people staying in Delhi, it has become a matter of worry.
A health hazard that can inflame breathing passages, reduce the working capacity of lungs, may also lead to shortness of breath, irritation of eyes, severe headache, can prove to be fatal in a few cases.
Whatever Delhi is witnessing, is not often seen before. The pollution levels in the city are far above the dangerous level.
In the wake of increasing levels of smog, the city streets in the national capital region have become high accident-prone areas.
One such case has been witnessed on Yamuna Expressway, where speeding vehicles often collide.
In a video shared by actor Arjun Kapoor who was shooting for his film in a nearby area, a large number of cars can be seen hitting one after the other, just because of the fact that visibility was almost zero.

What shocks me about #YamunaExpressway is that cars are allowed on it without functional warning lights and strict speed limits implemented

Scenes in Delhi and Yamuna Expressway are horrifying. We certainly don’t seem to have a better tomorrow. Act now or lose it all.

#YamunaExpressway forcefully make people limit the speed to 20 kmph.
If google maps can determine a cars speed why can’t govt use technology to find a solution

The video is a clear indication that it is already a high time that we must accept the fact that we are the only reason for this hazard and nothing can now be avoidable. More than 25 million lives are at stake. A pollution emergency has already been declared by the medical fraternity. We need to figure out an immediate solution, before its too late and we start suffering from the worst of the consequences.
