In the year 1914 "Indian Motor Vehicle Act 1914" was passed in our country to regulate the motor vehicles and as well as other road users. Since then the traffic pressure on the roads of our country multiply several times and at the same time to control the unprecedented growth in the number of motor vehicles, the first Motor Vehicle Act 1914 which was in later years known as "The motor Vehicle Act 1988" was amended and revised several times by the Government of India.
Traffic rules and regulations are devised to assure the smooth flowing of motor vehicles in the road. Moreover, traffic rules and regulation are not only for the driver of the vehicles but at the same times these rules are meant for the pedestrians, cyclist, motor-cyclist and other road users.
