  • Reply to the recent Indian Law on drunk driving: http://ibnlive.in.com/videos/235569/will-stringent-laws-against-drunk-driving-end-the-menace.html

    Ashish:
    I understand the law but people who make these laws don't understand the cause behind such laws and implications of failing them. India has the highest two & four wheel crashes around the world. It's a good initiative but lag in decision making. Problem or objective for such laws should be minimizing crashes and fatalities to the people who drive and also to the people who actually suffered.
    Enforcing Law is not just one solution, neither 3E's of Mrs. Bedi can resolve all. Being a transportation engineer, I would like to mention that causes and preventions are already being studied world wide, and we are just looking at one segment.
    We already suffers from delay in decision making, so I want when it comes, our politicians and thinkers actually do the ground studies and look at the problem from all angles not just the person who is drunk and drove.
    We have worked on implementation of highway safety in both engineering as well as policy way. Here is just a small slides to make public aware that what causes an accident and what are the solutions. If some is interested,, they can contact the author.
