Reason for Accident
Driving on the wrong side of the road may appear to be a quick fix, but it can have serious implications. It is critical to constantly stay in the correct lane, especially on highways. If using the improper lane is unavoidable, avoid the fast lane, which is frequently utilised for overtaking by other vehicles.
Several motorways and motorways are constructed without access roads for residents, causing them to use the highway and choose the wrong side to reach their goal and shorten the journey.
Because there is no concept of right-of-way in India, it is advised to slow down when approaching a crossing to maintain road safety. When driving on highways, it’s also a good idea to slow down when travelling through populous regions like towns and villages. Despite approved pedestrian crossings, many individuals choose to cross the highway at random to save time, and stray animals and livestock are common in such situations.
