Here's some commonsense advice on how to stay safe when navigating around potholes on roads. Lurking under the surface water can be concealed potholes, new potholes and potholes that are deeper than you think they might be. Stay vigilant. Be safe.
Any road signage must be created and displayed as recommended by the IRC (Indian Roads Congress) standards. Road signs play a vital role in conveying essential safety information to motorists. No aspect of a sign's design, position or orientation is to be left to the creative interpretation of authorities! As road signs become consistent, motorists become familiar with them. We can then expect compliance to improve and enforcement to thererfore become easier.

Signage saves lives! Just putting up a road sign is not enough. They need to be strategically positioned, giving drivers the time to react and make smart decisions. For example, a 'PEDESTRIAN CROSSING' sign should be well ahead of the actual crossing. This early warning will give motorists sufficient time to slow down and ensure pedestrian safety. Responsible authorities must act to ensure signs are visible and road users safe.
Road signs play a crucial role in reducing road crashes by conveying important messages to drivers. Under all weather conditions, these signs should be positioned for visibility & readability. Today, road signs are missing on many roads. It's time the authorities assess roads & install appropriate road signs. #RoadSafety
The other day, cycling home from work, a two-wheeler came up behind me on the left and honked several times. She then overtook me on the left and as she did, I felt compelled to ask why she had honked. (Since the traffic was heavy and it was not a wide road, we were all crawling along.) Her response was that she was warning me! Of what I still don’t know. At one level that response could be read as aggression - “I am warning you, get out of the way, or else…” or it could be meant to inform me that she exists. Either way there was no need to honk.
CAG submitted comments and suggestions to the Highways Department, Government of Tamil Nadu, on the exclusion of non-motorised and shared transport under the Chennai Smart Urban Roads project.
Tamil Nadu was the first state to bring in a Road Safety Policy as a part of its road safety management system. However, the status of the existing Road Safety Policy calls for an immediate review to ensure that the policy reflects prevailing road safety issues and identifies existing policy constraints. This report furnishes a set of recommendations for the state through a qualitative comparison of Road Safety Policies of other states in India.
