GeneralSo, here's the slightly longer justification. Most of us don't want to drive badly, but do so because it does not seem possible to drive on the roads today without doing otherwise. If we followed all the rules, we would stick out like a sore thumb. While others would be weaving in and out of traffic, we would be left behind. At other times, pedestrians expect us to honk at them, when it clearly increases the noise pollution in the city. Most importantly however, as a society, we know we can't trust each other anymore to do the right thing. In other words, we don't want to be suckers where everybody else (literally) moves on past us, while we are giving way. This is probably the main reason why we have no problem following rules when we go to other countries. People suggest that it is because laws and rules are more strictly implemented there, but even in situations where law enforcement is nowhere in sight, we have people following the rules. The reason is because there is enough trust in the rest of society to do the same, to follow the rules if we are. In this game theory situation, some external influence seem to be called for, and this site is an attempt to do that. Too often we are apathetic to violations, but they take a toll. How much of a toll is clear when we look at the statistics listed on the side.

The Big Idea
Some ugly statistics
In 2010, India achieved the dubious distinction of having the highest number of road fatalaties in the world.
There are 131.2 fatalities per 10,000 motor vehicles in India as compared to 1.4 for Great Britain and 2.0 in the US.
Every 6th car crash in the world happens in India, in spite of us having only 1% of the Global vehicle population.
14 People die on Indian roads every hour.
