Padhy, S., Agrawal, P., and Yadav, Y., "Accident Scenarios on Indian Roads: A Study of Driver Behaviour and Road Infrastructure, based on data collected by ADAC," SAE Technical Paper 2017-26-0002, 2017, doi:10.4271/2017-26-0002.
Most of the time in motor vehicle accidents, the driver of the vehicle (especially driver of the larger vehicle in case of collision involving multiple vehicles) is held responsible for rash and negligent driving. But in-depth study and statistics, points out several external or environmental factors playing crucial role in these unfortunate incidents. In some cases these factors directly influence an accident/crash and in some cases these factors influence the behavior pattern of the driver, which increases risk of unsafe practices. Based on the real time data collected by ADAC on the Gurgaon - Jaipur Stretch of NH-8 and others parts of India, some of the factors that directly or indirectly influences the drivers behaviour, are illustrated in this paper.
