An interesting sight witnessed on the roads these days is the constant increase in the number of cars be it sedans, luxury cars or SUVs. While the engines and make of the car can differ from model to model, one thing that needs to be consistent for each of them is the safety of the vehicle for the passengers.
Following road safety rules while driving in India can make driving less stressed out. But often people break rules just to reach their destination quickly. Putting their lives at risk, people indulge in rash driving that sometimes lead to accidents. Besides glass, there are numerous other things that can be done to reduce the car traffic and pollution issues. Some of the rules are listed below: Educate your loved ones: Making your children and your loved ones aware of road safety can bring about a great impact to their lives. Make sure you let them know about rules of crossing the road, traffic signs and so on. Drive/ride at economical pace: Driving or riding the vehicle at a constant speed will increase the overall fuel efficiency by at least 30%. This can be done by maintaining a steady pace in your driving style. By doing so, one can reduce the amount of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. Make sure to also service the car regularly to keep the engine tuned.
Avoid peak hours: Peak hours is the worst time to commute as the street is crowded with people heading to work, school and other venues. Often people are stuck in heavy traffic. This causes stress and doubles the traveling time to your destination. To cut down on this issue, one needs to schedule their errands and travelling to avoid peak hours. This helps to save time and gets the task done as well. Follow traffic rules: Following traffic rules ensures road safety and smooth flow of traffic system. Traffic rules also ensure that one does not have to deal with speeding tickets or any other fines given by traffic officials. These rules also imply to pedestrians who are looking to cross the road without any risk.
Carpooling/Public transport: For some people, avoiding peak hour traffic might not be possible. During such times, carpooling or using public transport can be the smarter choice. It can help contributing to less traffic, prevents you from getting stressed and can save a lot on money. In a country like India, one also worries about parking in major cities like Mumbai and Delhi! This will be less of an issue with carpooling.
