Road Safety Audits are an integral part of
traffic management to ensure that everyone
walking or driving on roads are safe. These
audits are normally conducted by both public as
well as private authorities. Timely audits are
important to ensure the proper installation of
safety signs and other equipment. This helps in
reducing the number of accidents while improving
traffic discipline. If you walk down the road in
your city, you will find the various types of
signs and equipment to control or maintain the
traffic. You will find signboards, bumpers,
traffic signal, check post and more. In a road,

    silent translator of road rules and regulation
    for the people on the road. They are very
    efficient in maintaining the traffic discipline
