Indian roads record the highest number of accidents in the world. Lack of sufficient signage contributes to declining quality of road safety systems in the country. Additionally, the phenomenal growth in vehicle population has caused many of the arterial city roads and intersections to operate at a level far beyond their intended capacity. Hence, there is a pressing demand for better enforcement of traffic laws, improved timely information dissemination systems and traffic management measures.
