    CAUSES OF VIOLATIONS

    Road Traffic Management not defined

    Role and Responsibility of Traffic Police,

    Transport Department, Highway Agencies is

    overlapping, not defined and not coordinated

    No Traffic Engineering Centers at City,

    District or Federal levels.

    Expertise is outsourced to Consultants

    Standardized Systems/Specifications of Traffic

    Control Device are grossly misunderstood &

    violated

  • 5

    Road maintenance and construction authorities violate all

    principles of safety management. This makes all road

    users vulnerable especially during dark hours.

    Drivers are not trained. Driving schools lack the

    methodology, tools and systems of training.

    Encroachments are galore which have basically eaten up into

    pedestrian and cyclist facility making them the most vulnerable lot.

    RECOMMENDATIONS

    Investment into Research for Mixed Traffic Conditions for

    Developing Countries

    Educating the Political Leaders for creation of political will

    Initiation of Science of Traffic Engineering as a course in

    Universities and creation of employment opportunities for

    Traffic Engineers.

    Traffic Engineering Centers must be established as is done in

    all developed countries.

    Traffic Management needs to be defined along with the Roles and

    Responsibility of all related agencies.

    Shift from Consultancies to empowering infrastructure development

    Development of Tools and Systems of Training

    Enforcement

    Driver Training

    Traffic Engineering

    Post Collision Management
