Some Signs And Symbols You Must Know In Order To Drive Safely In India

When you are driving on Indian roads, the road signs are the primary source of information letting you know what you can and can’t do. The road signs help create order on the roads, and – in turn – lead to safer roads with a lower possibility of an accident taking place.

If the driver ignores these signs or is uneducated about them, he/she puts not only themselves at risk but also others who use the road. While a comprehensive car insurance policy can make sure that you do not have to worry about the financial repercussions of an accident, learning about the road signs will help you prevent the accidents in the first place.

Let us look at some of the most important signs and symbols you should familiarize yourself with before taking your seat behind the wheel.

Types Of Road Signs

There are three types of road signs and symbols:

  1. Mandatory Signs

    If you ignore the directions provided through these signs, you are breaking the law. These signs ensure the smooth flow of traffic and are meant the make roads safer. These include signs like speed limits, restricted entry, prohibition on the use of horns etc.

  2. Cautionary Signs

    These signs warn the driver of certain road conditions ahead. These are not a legal command, but you should be aware of these as they help you take necessary precaution for you and your co-passengers safety. These may include warnings about pedestrian crossing, slippery roads, men at work, narrow bridges and merging traffic among others.

  3. Informatory Signs

    These signs provide you with information that may come handy in a pinch. These include signs telling you the distance to a particular destination, the presence of a hospital or first-aid post, the location of a gas station, a public telephone etc.

Important Road Signs

Following are three of the most important signs that you must be aware of when driving on Indian road.

  1. Speed Limit

    This sign consists of a number written in black ink, encircled in a red circle. The number indicates the top speed you are allowed to drive at on a road. There is a misconception that the speed limits in India are too restrictive. This is not true. The speed limit is arrived on after considering the quality of the road, the average traffic on the route, the capacity of the vehicles that ply on the road, etc. You should adhere to the speed limits as they ensure your safety.

  2. Give Way

    A red, hollow triangle painted upside down shows that a junction is coming up, and you may have to stop to allow the driver on the opposite direction to pass. Remember that this is a mandatory sign, and not following it is a legal offence.

  3. Hospital

    Being aware of where a hospital is located can potentially be life-saving. The sign for a hospital is made up of a bed with a red cross over it. Even if you don’t need to visit a hospital, it is advisable to take note of this sign and avoid honking when in the vicinity.

Remember, this is just an indicative list. We believe these are the most important signs on the road, but you should be aware of many more even to get the driving license from the RTO.
