    The risk of accidents on Indian highways are rather high. Riders should be careful while crossing a junction or passing through a village. It is advised to slow down when approaching a crowded stretch on the highway as there usually will be jaywalkers crossing the road.

    When passing through such a stretch of highway, always make sure that no pedestrians crossing the road. If you do come across pedestrians, give way to them or else it may lead to a horrific crash. The risk is even higher when riding at night and it is better to be travelling at controllable speeds to ensure you will have enough time to react to avoid any object or pedestrian on the highway.
