ROAD SAFETY ,YET ANOTHER ASPECT TO BE EMPHASISED ON :
I was watching the different vehicles that were plying faSt as well as slow. After some distance saw several aberations by the drivers on the highway .
The road rule says that the Slow moving as well as huge vehicles to take the Left extreem lane and the fast moving one take the middle and the overtaking ones take the Right extreme lane .
* Here the Driver of the Slow moving Vehicle has to strictly to adhere to the left most Lane . And leave the right lane to the Fast moving Vehicle , unles the driver wants to overtake a slower moving Vehicle and get back to the left Lane if he wants to drive slow.
* The first Video 112157 shows a fast moving Car wants to overtake the correctly slow moving one and then hits a Block to see a Slow moving one occupying the right lane .
This practice of overtaking 2 Vehicles next to next has a lot of chances for Accidents at high Speed , not to say the drivers Maturity contributing to it .
The highway petrol should innovate and do something to make the Drivers realize about this danger and
AT THE SAME TIME IMPLEMENT THIS LAW WITH WARNING & PENALTY . more
1. Auto drivers generally tend to drive along the dotted line between two lanes. Thereby they think that they are leaving both lanes on either side free for other vehicles to overtake them. They only overlook the narrowness of those lanes.
2. Even car drivers suffer from the same disease.
3. If, on a road, three lanes are made into five, the traffic is bound to suffocate. Drivers don't realise that the traffic would move much faster if they stuck to three lanes only.
4. After years of living in Europe we returned to India and now live in Delhi. I took twenty driving lessons in order to get the courage to drive on roads in India. In Europe, your slow lane is the rightmost one. It was shocking for me to observe that here in India the slow traffic drives on the rightmost lane, whereas it should be the other way around.
5. My assumption is that most of drivers in this country have not gone through a proper driving course. Hearsay also is that a driving licence can be had for a handful of rupees.
However, to be fair to drivers, I do not find any booklet in a bookshop which shows the traffic signs and which describes critical situations on roads and how to react to these correctly.
6. And I wouldn't be surprised if it was found out that many, many, many drivers do not even have a driving licence. more
