There are too many accidents in the Eastern Express highway. The main reason for the accidents is the rash and negligent driving and failure to follow traffic rules. The license allotting authorities should use more stringent tests before giving license to the drivers. Apart from speed, the lane cutting caused most of these accidents. The first lane, one near the divider is for overtaking. The second lane is for light vehicles and the third lane is for buses and other heavy vehicles. However, most of the motorists do not follow the rules. Eastern Expressway is the focal point for the accidents as there is no restriction for speed. There are no speed guns to check the speed in this stretch. This causes all serious and major accidents and human life has lost its value just because of over speeding.
