Traffic Rules in India
The transport department of each
and every city around the world has been entrusted with the responsibility
of providing a smooth public transportation system on roads, controlling
pollution under permissible limits, keeping a record of registration
of vehicles, insurance of vehicles, issuing permits and collection
of taxes. These departments function by devising policies, implementing
them and then monitor and regulate the functioning of the transport
in the city.
Traffic rules of the roads are both the laws and
the informal rules that may have been developed over time to facilitate
the orderly and timely flow of traffic. With the replacement of
ancient horse driven carts with cars and trucks, the speed of the
traffic increased paving way for the need of smooth roads and yet
smoother traffic. So, to curb the need of the smoother traffic,
some rules were devised to assure that the traffic runs smooth.
Almost all of the roadways traffic rules are built with devices
meant to control traffic.
The basic idea to devise rules is to make the traffic more organized. These establish a direct contact with the driver and help making the ride easy and controlled by delivering information which compliments the laws, guiding directions, speed limits and parking zones. All these efforts collectively assure that traffic is orderly and safe. An organized traffic has well established priorities, lanes flowing in particular directions. The benefit is that it reduces the travel time. Some rules and regulations have been formulated for an easy driving. The drivers are not allowed to drive without a few documents. These documents should be produced on demand.
