Sidebars_aboutproj
An exercise in exploring solutions for curbing the rampant bribery in the issuing of the driver's license in India, by using information as a leverage point. As a final outcome of this project, the driving license was redesigned to provide information about which authority issued it as well as names of driving school who have taught the driver / or sponsors in the case of a self taught driver. At the back of the license is a campaign for safe driving and creating awareness about road fatalities caused due to the oversight of the driver.

How it works
Sidebars_challenge

It is a common practice to pay bribes to get a driving license because it is time consuming, & the process nearly guarantees that a bribe will be paid during the process. The consequence of the petty bribes are unskilled drivers, which cause India to become the country with the most automobile accidents.

 
Sidebars_solution

We redesigned the drivers’ license for both accountability and as a reminder of the consequences of driving without proper skills. The new driving license incorporates elements of Identity, Accountability Transparency and Awareness.
