 CROSS  ROADS – VINOD KUMAR

In  India,  deaths  because  of  traffic  accidents  are  alarming.  Under  age  must  be   restricted  from  driving.  Many  under  age  people  learn  to  drive  out  of  practice.   They   may  not  have  gone  to  the  driving  school,  and  learnt  the  appropriate   academics  of  road  use.  In  this  case  that  you  do  not  know  the  academics  and   signage  of  road  use,  then  it  is  you  who  are  a  danger  to  other  road  users.

Your  convenience  of  parking  at  wrong  place  is  certainly  harassment  to  other   people.  The  government  must  put  strict  punishment  to  those  who  drive  in   inebriated  and  drunken  state.  Alcohol  consumption  and  drunk  driving  must  be   banned.

Can  we  recommend  that  driving  for  entertainment  and  thrill  must  not  be  on  the   highways.  Thrill  and  entertainment  in  driving  can  be  experienced  on  special  tracks   and  go  carting  and  other  car  drifting  and  racing  circuits.  Driving  for  a  pass  time   consumes  additional  fuel  and  petrol  and  contributes  to  pollution.  I  do  not  think   that  Indian  drivers  will  ever  know  about  fast  lanes  and  slow  lanes.  But  that  is  a   minor  misdemeanor.  One  can  also  notice  holiday  open  market  popping  up  on   roads.  Yes,  on  Sundays  and  at  early  hours  of  the  day,  the  farms  produces  are   auctioned  of  at  specific  spots  on  road  sites.  This  is  a  part  of  open  market  or  farm   culture.  As  long  as  there  are  regional  buyers,  this  road  habit  cannot  be  curtailed.

Toll  roads  have  become  popular  in  India.  There  are  cleaner,  neater  and  safer   solutions.  But  some  social  agitators  and  activists  have  made  roads  as  their  venue   for  processions,  dharnas  and  protests.  These  hooligans  do  en mass  sit-­‐in  to  block   the  roads  and  high  ways,  only  to  make  their  voices  heard.  Though  there  are  other  road  users  to  be  of  nuisances  to  you,  yet  it  is  your  responsibility  to  be  poised  and   composed.  If  you  practice  some  breathing  techniques,  yoga  or  even  meditation,   daily,  then  other  arrogant  drivers  will  not  succeed  to  irritate  you  or  annoy  you.   Road  safety  is  paramount.

Even  in  case  of  minor  accident,  the  arrival  of  police  may  be  delayed.  In  such  case   the  on  lookers  and  regional,  public  can  cause  an  eruption  of  severe  arguments   that  can  raise  emotional   temperatures.   People  who  have   no  expertise  of   arbitration  or  insurance  will  claim  to  peg  the  damage  at  a  currency  value.  Most   often  it  is  a  large  compensation  from  a  larger  vehicle  to  a  smaller  one.  Example  is   that  the  four  wheeler  driver  has  to  compensate  a  two  wheeler  driver,  irrespective   of  the  flaw  and  the  mistake.  Or  else  the  argument  could  be  lengthy  and  so  will  be   the  traffic  jam.  Here,  you  must  be  equipped  with  social  and  judicial  skills,  phone   network  and  local  language.  To  beat  the  severe  traffic,  it  is  wise  to  avoid  peak   hours.  Early  mornings  are  the  good  time  to  begin  the  journey.

Your  vehicle  must  get  lots  of  care  too.  Keep  all  its  parts  in  good  condition.  Check   the  quality  of  gears,  brake  and  other  parts  so  that,  you  can  control  the  vehicle  in   case  of  turbulence.  The  tyres  too,  must  be  of  good  quality.  Prior  knowledge  of   roads  and  spots  of  stop  overs  make  it  easy  to  navigate  through  the  journey.
