Basic rules on four lane road

 Apparently, Naga are at a fast track in procuring various types of luxurious SUV vehicles as the competitive motor industries grow in India. Similarly, it is like a competitive lifestyle of having the latest SUV whether one knows the technical knowledge of driving or not, ultimately led to all avoidable traffic jam and accident in a very high frequency for reason best known to everyone but no one like to openly discuss.

No wonder, it’s the first time in Nagas’ history to have developed fourlane roads, most of which are going on in snail phase and we don’t really know when it will be completed for reason beyond our knowledge where, the said fourlane turned into vast muddy field that you really lost the track where you’re actually heading to.

Nevertheless, as of today the only portion that has completed is from the main city of Dimapur to till Chumukedima some 20 km having a modern look and easy driving. There, in that portion most of the self driven vehicles thought that they are the king of road, driving recklessly at their own whim and fancy without any sense of traffic rules that ultimately resulted frequent traffic jam and preventable accidents, causing loses of live and properties.

Therefore, will it not be imperative enough for the concern agent and department to impart basic knowledge and rules being enforced and practices in India for the safety of the public as a whole. Invariably, one of the foremost basic rules here one should follow while driving on fourlane road;

“The slower vehicles will mostly be on your left while the faster ones will easily overtake you from the right. In case you are in the right most lanes and a faster vehicle is behind you, just indicate to the left and give him/her way, you can switch back to the fast lane after the faster vehicle has crossed you”

Well, this is only a fraction of traffic rules on fourlane but it is very crucial because most of the accident take-place in the process of overtaking other vehicles.
