Sachin Tendulkar, who arrived in Indore to play the Road Safety World Series cricket tournament, has insisted on wearing a seat belt. This great batsman of the country has welcomed the decision of the government on the provision of wearing seat belts. He also said that just days before Tata Sons’ former chairman Cyrus Mistry (54) died in a road accident in Maharashtra’s Palghar district on September 4, he had described seat belts as the best option for safety in an interview. .
Talking to selected reporters, Tendulkar said, “It is very unfortunate that Mistry died in a road accident but it is a coincidence that two and a half weeks before his death when I was asked in an interview. In Indore. To what I would describe as the best aspect of the changes taking place in cars due to various technological innovations, I replied that seat belts are no match (in terms of passenger safety).
“It is a good and necessary step that the government is insisting on the mandatory wearing of seat belts by everyone sitting in the front and rear seats of the car,” Tendulkar said. It is generally seen that many people do not fasten their seat belts in the car. I myself drive a lot and as soon as I get into the car, the first thing I do is put on my seat belt. Otherwise I think there is something lacking.”
He said, ‘I always tell my fellow players that when we cross the boundary line and enter the field, we should remember while playing that people’s expectations are attached to us. There is no guarantee that we will always perform well. But it can be guaranteed that we will try our best to perform well.
