1. Especially in India, Traffic Police have a job at hand, which is much more important, than what is traditionally thought. Properly Managed traffic, is first step to Democracy, which displays fairness in the system, and prevalence of ONE RULE for all, on daily bases, unambiguously.
2. When motivated through self-directed behaviors, Traffic Police persons are an asset to Democracy and to Enforcement.
3. When motivated intrinsically, Traffic Police-persons are most likely to be engaged, display pro-social behaviors, are creative to new situations, and are effective on the job.
Road Traffic reflects the soul, the pulse of a city, and affects every one of us daily for several hours. Driving is a Social Norm before it is commute, and this is the only place where we interact with entire cross section of society as a ritual, every day. How we interact or drive through traffic each day, is a reflection of our society; its values and its beliefs.
Home to most road crashes in the world, India has some of the worst road behaviors resulting in crashes and results in mistrust with fellow citizens.
Whereas, managing the traffic is an interplay of many things including road design, infrastructure, number of vehicles, driver training, licensing signage, enforcement etc, YET, Sane Driving believes, managing behaviors and attitudes, is CENTRAL to issue of managing traffic in India.
