Follow Road Safety Rules To Drive Safe!

India has the second largest road network globally, which makes vital contribution to the economy. With over 3 million km of roads of which only 60% are paved, the road travelers don’t get proper facilities making it difficult to drive on Indian roads. There is 1 fatality every four minute and 16.6 fatalities that happen every hour in India. These numbers are horrifying and it is high time we follow road safety rules before going out on the notorious roads.

Here are some road safety tips which are inevitable:

  1. First and the foremost rule of driving is the age. Make sure you are 18 years or above for being eligible to drive.
  2. Prohibit using the mobile phone while driving, it’s a major distraction and can cause serious road accidents. And better to talk later rather than never.
  3. Drinking and driving is a big NO. Drinking and driving is a deadly combination, say no to drunk driving.
  4. Do not honk unnecessarily especially near schools and hospitals.
  5. Follow the speed limit for car or bike. Every vehicle has a set speed limit for specific areas, so it’s better to be late than never.
  6. Don’t tailgate, maintain safe distance to avoid unnecessary collisions.
  7. Always wear seat belt while driving a four-wheeler. Seat belt prevent head collision and are provided for the safety of the driver and the passenger seating on the front seat.
  8. Always wear a helmet while riding a two-wheeler (bike, scooter, cycle or more). You can prevent major accidents and heads injuries by wearing helmet.
  9. Do not jump red light. Strictly follow traffic lights to avoid any hazard.
  10. Follow the sign boards planted on the roads to warn you and be cautious. They give an idea about the nature of the road. Below are a few to mention:
    1. Sharp curve ahead
    2. Keep left
    3. Keep right
    4. Speed Limit
    5. Men at work
    6. School ahead
    7. No parking
    8. No U turn
  11. Do not drive if you are tired or sleepy, as a second of unconsciousness can cause fatal accidents.
