 CROSS  ROADS – VINOD KUMAR

There  are  wreck less  people  on  the  road.  That  is  why  you  must  take  much  care,   when  you  are  driving  a  motor  vehicle.  Road  rage  is  becoming  common.  Traffic   jams  in  roads  in  India  has  become  of  concern  to  many  cities.  In  New  Delhi,   regimenting  cars  to  the  odd  number-­‐  even  number  scheme  is  inevitable.  There  do   not  seem  to  be  any  other  solution.  Even  metro  trains  has  contributed  to  easing   traffic  but  not  been  successful  to  eliminate  stand  still  traffic.

It  is  important  to  learn  rules  and  regulations  of  road  use.  A  twenty  meter  gap  is   essential  before  you  overtake  from  behind  a  heavy  vehicle.  This  gives  you  the  full   view  of  oncoming  vehicles  on  opposite  side.  And  this  distance  of  twenty  meters   margin  can  benefit,  when  you  choose  to  fall  back  and  not  to  overtake.  Such   meaningful  traffic  rules  and  regulations  must  be  given  due  respect.  Diligent   drivers  are  the  ones  who  follow  traffic  rules.  It  is  certain  that  road  use  for  the  day   is  temporary.  You  will  certainly  park  your  car  and  exit  the  road  use,  when  you   reach  destination  or  work,  or  at  home.  So,  then  why  not  plan  to  make  the   journey,  an  enjoyable  one?  If  you  plan  well,  before  journey,  then  you  will  manage   well,  your  time  that  you  are  on  road.  Incorporate  additional  few  minutes,  just  in   case  of  delay  along  your  journey.  Then  you  will  cease  to  be  anxious  and  not  to   hurry  in  haste.  To  be  safe  while  driving,  it’s  important  that  you  are  not  in  a  rush.   Your  decisions  while  you  negotiate  traffic  are  optimized  when  your  mind  is  calm   and  alert.  It  is  futile  to  share  your  attention  to  another  person  on  your  mobile   phone,  while  you  are  driving  on  road.

If  you  have  slept  well  and  rested  at  home,  then  you  will  avoid  feeling  sleepy  while   driving.  If  in  case  your  eyes  are  tired  and  drowsy,  then  stop  your  car  in,  road  side   car  park.  Rest  for  about  half  an  hour  and  refresh  yourself.

If  you  have  other  passengers  in  car,  then  their  safety  is  in  your  hands,  when  you   are  driving.  Do  not  indulge  in  entertaining  all  passengers  inside  the  car.  Refrain   from  involving  into  their  conversations.  Your  attention  and  focus  on  road  must  be   undivided,  especially  on  high  way  and  at  high  speeds.

Always  prefer  to  reduce  speeds  in  curves  and  turning.  Never  get  competitive  on   road,  with  and  along  other  cars  on  roads.  Do  not  let  rudeness  of  other  drivers  to   provoke  you.  If  there  are  other  wreck less  drivers,  then  it’s  okay  to  let  them  move   on.  And  you  may  trail  but  surely  you  will  be  safer.  Many  roads  in  India  may  be   built  unsafe.  It’s  common  to  read  the  signage,  that  cautions.  They  say  danger  zone   or  accident  prone.
