When you ask the public about the causes of accidents, most will say excessive speed, drunk driving and infrastructure problems are to blame. However, most accidents are caused by lack of road discipline. There are several reasons why it is difficult to follow a timetable in India. The most important of these is the condition of Indian roads.
Poor road infrastructure: Many roads in India are in poor condition, with potholes, uneven surfaces and a lack of clearly marked lanes. This can make it difficult for drivers to stay in their designated lanes. The high traffic density on the roads contributes to this. Indian roads are often congested with vehicles, making it challenging for drivers to maintain lane discipline and avoid collisions.
While roads and traffic contribute to the lack of lane discipline, other factors such as insufficient driver education and enforcement exacerbate the problem. Many drivers in India may not have received adequate training on the importance of lane discipline and how to maintain it on the road. Many drivers are overconfident in their abilities and may not consider the importance of lane discipline to ensure the safety of all road users. Added to this is the lack of enforcement of traffic laws in India, which is often lax and can lead to a culture of disregard for traffic rules and lack of accountability towards drivers who do not maintain lane discipline. There are also cultural and social problems. Lane discipline may not be a priority for some drivers in India, as there may be cultural or societal pressures that encourage reckless or aggressive driving.
