Driving license is issued after a driving test. It does not guarantee that he will never drive negligently. License is forfeited for the habitual offenders. Making an officer responsible is inappropriate. Can you hold a swimming instructor liable for the death of a swimmer by drowning?

I agree. We must have strict laws to rein in such drivers. There is an urgent need to curb the menace on our roads and highways. Drivers accused of rash or negligent driving should be denied bail at all times and their licence should be seized. With more people driving or using personal transport, only a stringent law will induce vehicle users to avoid rash driving like canceling the driving license, imposition of rigorous imprisonment and penalty up to the cost of the vehicle. More and more modern technological aid should be made available to the traffic police to detect even the most minor traffic infraction. External interference should be thwarted when police deal with traffic cases.

No. Because of the following:
1. Accidents can happen with best of the drivers.
2.Licensing authority gets hardly any time to test driving skills of an applicant.
3. License is given on the basis of the skills displayed by the applicant at that particular moment.
4. If it is due to negligence on the part of the driver as u said, then how can the officer be responsible.
Most of the accidents are caused by drivers not having license, drunk driving, arrogance & over confidence of the drivers. PS: I am not an RTO
