 CROSS  ROADS – VINOD KUMAR

Night  driving  in  Indian  roads  has  it’s  own  challenges.  In  many  roads  the  head  light   beam  from  tracks  on  opposite  lanes,  do  hit  right  at  your  eyes.  In  such  cases  be   extremely  alert  to  avoid  blind  spots  where  visibility  is  tampered.  Make  a  good   practice  of  using  your  side  mirror  and  rear  view  mirror.  Do  not  change  lanes   without  ensuring  that  it  is  clear  and  empty.  Erratic  and  impulsive  decisions  may  be   the  cause  of  many  a  traffic  accidents.  Do  not  make  jerky  movements  while  on   roads  as  you  may  cause  confusions  to  other  passengers.  Patience  is  a  great  virtue   while  on  long  drives.  Some  people  habitually  want  to  sleep  after  a  heavy  meal.

For  them,  small  portions  and  not  a  complete  fill  of  stomach  is  safer.  So  while   behind  the  wheel  you  are  not  drowsy  or  sleepy.  Do  not  drive  if  you  have  taken   medication  that  has  sedative  properties.
I  strongly  recommend  that  you  deliberately  make  a  list  of  over  thirty  items.  Write   down  in  detail  the  precautions  that  needs  attention.  Share  this  list  with  other   passengers,  so  that  all  are  on  the  same  page  for  conduct  while  on  the  tour.  One   precaution  can  be  that,  conflicting  discussions,  and  disputing  issues  can  be  edited   from  debates  while  you  are  driving.  Take  care  that  you  are  not  dragged  into   quarrel  with  passengers  in  your  car.

Advance  anticipation  of  other  violations  of  other  road  users  is  a  great  skill,  so   that,  your  brain  already  is  in  prepared  mode.  Then  in  case  of  other  violators,  yet   you  are  ready  to  deflect  and  dodge,  potential  dangerous  driving  maneuvers.

Driving  and  long  journey  is  the  main  entity  while  in  this  act.  So  priority  is  on  safety   features  of  vehicle  use.  Use  your  vehicles   and  driving  skills  when  they  are   essential  for  the  journey.  You  can  discover  many  more  disciplines  that  can  make   your  journey  a  very  pleasurable  experience.   Much  vigil  is  essential  while   approaching  cross  roads.  In  India  it  is  common  practice  to  see  violators,  of  traffic   indicating  signals.  At  cross  roads,  the  principle  is,  to  be  sure  than  to  be  sorry.  Rule   out  any  possibility  of  a  collision.

This  road  ways  of  India  can  be  a  great  educator.  You  may  also  be  moving  from   one  district  to  the  next  and  from  state,  to  other  state,  to  enrich  your  social   experience.  Awareness,  alertness  and  attention  on  driving  and  quality  of  driving   can  eliminate  accidents.  Enroll  to  the  club  of  safe  driving.
