Assam being one of the emerging states of India, the transformation of villages into towns, towns into cities and improvement in the road connectivity has been witnessed throughout the state. Exponential growth in population and their increasing movements resulted proportional raise in number of motor vehicles of all sizes and shapes on the roads making traffic management extremely difficult to maintain smooth flow of traffic on the road. To make matters worse, pedestrians and other road users are joining the crowd. The situation is in such a worsening condition that the traffic managements have ended up being at the receiving end.
To tackle this man made menace an improvised and judicial system need to be in place in the form of traffic rules and regulations along with innovative infrastructural support base. Therefore, State Government invites suggestions from citizens to put forward their innovative ideas and suggestions to develop an organised traffic system, which will be conducive to the smooth flow of men and help in minimising and eliminating of traffic congestion.

Last date for submission of ideas is 25th May, 2017

Four wheelers

3. While turing off from the main road, always use the indicators. The indicators should be initiated atleast 30 metres from the point of turn.

Two wheeler riders and pilions
1. Should always use helmets while riding.
2. Should not remain at the blind spots of other vehicles. The left rear corner of any vehicle is the biggest blind spot and riders should always avoid that.
3. Remain visible to other road users. Turn on the headlamps at low beam at all times. Use bright coloured clothes or High visibility jackets.
4. Maintain speed with the traffic at a safe distance from vehicles up front and at the back.

Some suggestions for controlling Assam Traffic

Pedestrians
1. Should remain at the left hand side of the road while walking. If footpath is present, pedestrians should use the footpath.
2. Should cross the road at designated zebra crossings or police points or should use the overbridges. Do not remain distracted.
3. Should always be aware of the passing traffic at all times, pedestrians are the most vulnerable on the road and a small mistake by some other road user may lead to their harm.

Controlling Traffic in Assam
1. Rickshaws & Thelas should be removed from all the main roads. (Only to be allowed in Bye lanes)
2. Making Footbridges in major intersections in the cities. (People do not use zebra crossing and they think they are traffic police and they cross the roads wherever they want)
3. Common People should be educated about Road Safety and Traffic Rules.(while giving license and also the existing license holders mainly city bus, trucks and other bus drivers)
