Discipline in India

Queue jumping is widespread in India. VIPs get special treatment almost everywhere, and some people have a “Do you know who I am?” attitude. Waiting passively for one’s turn in line is rare.

Driving in India is dangerous, and accident rates are high. There are two main reasons for this: First, most road contractors lack integrity. Roads end up in bad condition within months of being laid. Some traffic lights don’t work properly.

Second is the attitude of drivers in India. Most Indian drivers have a “Me first” attitude, rather than the “After you” attitude common in developed countries. There is not much road discipline in India. Jumping red lights and such stuff is pretty common. Lane disciple is unheard of. Pedestrians have little concern for safety of drivers, and make things more dangerous.
