    Are many Indians color blind at traffic signals?


    Why do people ignore the signal light changes? Do Indians lack basic civic sense on the road? And why?

    Almost all driving persons are just trying to err in the signals or overlook the signals. When they start from one signal their target is next signal only and so, they does not stop the vehicle till the next signal and run fast. Many of them by seeing the amber signal just to cross the signal post within the next 'red', they do not mind the vehicles from other side and forget that the other side driver also similar to him/her.

    Welcome to the educational portal, ISC.
    Yes, you are right in stating that many people behave at traffic signal as if they are colorblind. They never bother the color of the light.
    Enough awareness programs are run by traffic police at schools and at different public placces, still some people stay ignorant to their precious lives.

    Welcome to ISC. It is true in our country many people will have the habit of overtaking the traffic signals. They never give importance to those signals. When we wait with our vehicle we see many people just going forward without even slowing down the vehicle. We feel bad when we see such people. If the other side vehicle is also coming like this, there is every chance of an accident. By not caring a traffic signal how much time they are gaining and how much inconvenience they are causing the other people and how they are putting themselves at risk is not known to them I think. If one is suffering from a real disease it can be cured. But somebody as if they are diseased we can't cure their illness. Their thinking should get matured and they should respect traffic rules and regulations. Otherwise, this present state of traffic problems in India will never get cured.

    In our country, unfortunately most of the people are not disciplined and it leads to such metaphoric color blindness.

    It is happening in other crowded places also. Any queue in a public place breaks as soon as the action starts. In any function people rush for food as soon as it is announced with such a great hurry as if it is the last supper of their life.

    Why we behave like this? One reason which comes to my mind is that some people are brought like that only. They learn it from their elders. They see them behaving with most ill manners and ettiquettes and follow suit.

    No Govt or police can correct this situation until unless the citizens learn their selves that how to behave in public places.

    Knowledge is power.

    We got different backgrounds & so different experience in context to any specific actions. And so we also differ in our reactions on a particular circumstances.

    So is the case here.

    For few this is important & for others this may be irrelevant. Few are in hurry so don't care but at the same time others stick to the traffic rules. I already had this submission before wherein I also compared this with the queues at the Pizza store. Its a fact that we do have much patience while standing at the counter for our delivery but not having a second thought & jump through the signal although the signal remains red.

    I see this post is repetition of the same content mentioned by Mr. Natarajan in the thread http://www.indiastudychannel.com/forum/157876-Are-many-Indians-color-blind-at-traffic-signals.aspx.
