An overtaking problem

One needs to know how the vehicle will accelerate, the size and the space he needs to go through. Any miscalculations can cause accidents like this. Many such accidents also turn fatal.

Slow-moving vehicles are not allowed to overtake on a lot of highways. This is for the safety of the motorists around. This is the reason why getting a commercial license for heavy vehicles in India is much difficult and requires experience. However, in most other cases, the truck drivers are not at fault.

Indian highways

We commonly see stray animals, cattle and pedestrians crossing the road. There are even vehicles that come on the wrong side or take turns without using the indicators. It is very important to ride within the safe speed limit on Indian roads so that the speed can be controlled during emergency situations.

As there is no concept of the right-of-way in India, it is always a good idea to slow down to safer speeds on the roads when approaching a crossing. Also, when on the highways, it is always a good idea to slow down while crossing populated areas like cities and villages. Even though there are proper crossings made for pedestrians, most people do not use these crossings and try to save time by loitering on the highways. Also, such areas have a high chance of stray animals and cattle.

It is always a good idea to maintain a safe speed on the highways. Such incidents where the locals ride on the opposite lane are also very common. It mostly happens near the settlements or near cities and villages along the highways.
