Statistical data indicates that while rash driving is a cause of a large number of accidents in India, the poor condition of the roads in India is also one of the major causes of accidents in India. Many drivers meet with accidents trying to avoid potholes or falling into potholes on the roads all over India. The problem is particularly severe during the monsoon, as large parts of the road are washed away.
The uneven surface of the roads also damage the vehicles, and the vehicles parts may get damaged. In some cases the damaged part may be repaired, however other parts may have to be replaced. So garages and repair shops are doing brisk business during the monsoon as many vehicle owners have to get their vehicle repaired. Only in some cases, the damage is covered by insurance.
Countries like Singapore are also close to the Equator, and have a tropical climate, however the condition of the roads is far better. The poor condition of the roads, is due to the rampant identity theft of engineers in India, by the government, intelligence and security agencies , with experienced engineers held a virtual prisoner, while the relatives and friends of top officals like caro, mandrekar, nayak, hathwar, kodancha, fake engineering degrees to get lucrative raw/cbi jobs with monthly salary at the expense of the engineer.
