Indian driver's are known to not follow rules. Worse still,they show no respect to a fellow human - the pedestrian. Most driver's fail to stop at the zebra crossings for the pedestrians.

In the 1940's educational video When You’re a Pedestrian, Joe Smith, the deceased narrator, encourages both pedestrian and driver safety. Taking the "scare them straight" approach, footage of bad car accidents from the streets of Oakland, California, and scenarios depicted in a scaled-down model city, graphically illustrates accidents and documents the carnage left behind. Though primarily about how pedestrians must be careful, the film also implicates drivers and their responsibility to drive safely. "Here is death. Raw and ugly death!" the narrator fiendishly intones. The remedies for these horrors are, as one would expect, safe driving habits, defensive driving, and pedestrian safety tips. These gruesome car accident stories are not entirely dated and without merit in and of themselves: road traffic accidents are a horrific killer every year. When You're a Pedestrian is good for a laugh and a reminder of the need for pedestrian and driver responsibility.
During Daylight Savings, clocks and smoke alarms aren't the only things needing attention; according to GMAC Insurance, drivers and pedestrians should also pay attention to their habits to stay safe.
Last year, a study confirmed that pedestrians are three times more likely to be killed in the month during the Daylight Savings switch (both in spring and fall). In response, GMAC Insurance surveyed over 5,000 licensed Americans to determine if they take additional safety precautions during the time change. The findings reveal that two-thirds of respondents – amounting to approximately 133 million Americans – do not take extra precautions while walking during this time.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 112,000 pedestrians and cyclists were injured and nearly 5,800 killed in traffic crashes in 2006. With new technology, the automotive industry hopes to help reduce those numbers.
General Motors has been developing a two-way communications technology called V2P, or vehicle to pedestrian communication, to support a driver's ability to safely operate their vehicle around pedestrians and cyclists. V2P uses two different types of technology, GPS and wireless communications to send and receive its location information to other users.
The new miniaturized technology, about the size of a cell phone, will allow pedestrians and cyclists to wear transponders that will give drivers with transponder-equipped vehicles warning when they are getting too close. In the future, GM hopes to make this technology available to pedestrians by offering it to cell phone and keyfob manufacturers.
