Not on ECR though. That road is a death trap at night.

Repercussions are not strong enough for those committing traffic transgression in India I fear.

Hopefully, people will be smacked into their senses one way or another.

And what are you talking about? Los Angeles has some of the worst drivers in the country. In Irvine,Ca, I've had a few people flick me off just for stopping at a yellow light! Don't know who's worse, Boston drivers or LA drivers!!

I was more or less referring to "indian state of mind" weather being on the road or elsewhere perhaps it attributes to lack of discipline in Indian domain as you pointed out.
I agree LA has some the worst drivers in United States however its the level of carelessness and ignorance towards law that really makes it "worst"..
In my previous response I was more or less pointing out dare attitude of the member who rather then criticizing "lack of respect for traffic laws" made Indian country as " Training ground" for potential drivers by saying "if you could drive in India you could drive anywhere" ;-))

I am sure hardcore gamer would agree with this, Honking is so part of indian culture that even if there is "NO ONE" in front of the driver , he/she still would feel need for honking honking as much the as need for pressing on "Gas pedal" or even "break"....:-)

papperback and Kanadzie, this thread is about highways and expressways in India.
The fact that you have been posting disparaging comments about India's city streets, and not about what this thread is about, clearly indicates you're trolling.
Such posts will be reported to the Mods if they persist.
Thanks for your consideration.

Now coming to highways and expressways in India, please go back a few pages in this thread and you can see this topic has been discussed several times.
Of course, there can be improvements in some of India's highways, but for someone who's driven in India and in the USA, Canada and Germany over the past few decades, I can tell you the gap in expressway and highway quality as well as driving sense on highways has undoubtedly decreased considerably.
The photos posted, although not complete pictures, clearly show the remarkable progress India's highways have made, both quantitatively and qualitatively.

Correct. Road infrastructure encompasses road etiquette and enforcement of road etiquette. India has to work on both. A lot.

Dont be ashamed of "Critiques", take those in a positive spirit ,work on imperfections and turn them into perfections.

I think the stats from the MoRTH should be the most accurate.

Eastern Freeway, Mumbai

The Eastern Freeway in eastern Mumbai.
It traverses along eastern Mumbai and connects central Mumbai to the eastern suburb of Chembur.

That's the Gurgaon toll plaza. I believe there are plans to remove it.

They've not got rid of it, just shut it down/stopped collecting toll.

The Delhi - Gurgaon Expressway has become toll free, now that the main toll plaza has been demolished. According to the India Times, 200,000 vehicles per day drive on it.

As per hearsay,NH4 is the busiest highway in India-the 1350 km long NH4 connects 4 Metros viz.Chennai,Bangalore,Pune,Mumbai and many other district HQs /tier 2 cities enroute.It also provides arterial connections to Goa,Konkan,Shirdi etc.. This highway is the only one of its kind to link 4 Metros in one stretch of just 1350kms. I do not think there is any other NH in India that can claim this status.Please correct me if I am wrong.
A couple of times on internet too, at some places I have found it being said that NH4 is the busiest NH in India,although I too did not fetch a statistical data of all National highways w.r.t vehicular density.

If someone has authentic data regarding busiest NHs of present times,they can please share.
Driven on NH4, but NH45 between Trichy to Chennai is the most busiest especially during nights. The bus traffic is undoubtedly the highest and combined with trucks on a holiday season during Diwali or shankaranti the volume of vehicles should be among top 3 in India. But I do not have any data.
