Every year thousands of people loose their life or get injured in road accidents and particularly while going from one city to another. Instead of blaming this on drivers or vehicles, we can reduce these accidents by ensuring safe and easy passage to all types of vehicles travelling on inter-city roads. By having minimum two and a half lanes or best is three lanes on either side of the divider, we will be able to achieve this. Trucks and buses can travel in the lane near the divider so they are away from two wheeler lane which is the outer half lane. The central lane can then be used by Cars travelling at relatively higher speeds. Any lane changing should be allowed only to overtake slower vehicle in front. Clear lane marking which is now being seen on many highways should be ensured for all lanes. India and many developing countries have range of vehicles with distinct three Speed ranges namely for Heavy Vehicles, Cars and two wheeler vehicles like scooters and bikes or bicycles. Each one getting its own safe passage will mean safe and rapid travel over long distances. Quicker construction of either fly-overs or city bypass roads for the towns on the way is another need to speed up the journey. Example Photo credit Thomas Despeycroy
