They may be blamed for the mishap and fined heavily or put in a lock up by the police.

Because not all are trained to deal with injured people for first aid. If you go through any structured driver training books, it is well advised to call for ambulance and police help to attend victims rtaher than direct help, it may some times worsen the situation. In India another reason is ofcourse fear of police and colateral confusions and difficulties.

Although we have our personal works, we must help the accident victims. But the major problems I am thinking are, 1. Legal formalities - The helper is likely going to face much problem more than the victim by police, court, insurance, etc., 2. Official formalities - They need to respond for their boss and has to face dis-obedience in duty formalities, 3. Economical condition - Today it is hard even to meet the personal expenses. Most of the person are having nearly about Rs.100 or 200 in their pockets. So they could not bare the hospital expenses with that.

It's not only out of fear of fear of police harassment but also in apprehension of witnessing oneself in the court of Law even for prolonged days there after !!

They don't want to go behind the bars,thats the common mentality,in my native place there is a drive against this act wherein u get to know how to help the victims and reach the nearest hospital in time,some acts,u will get an identity card wherein u can help the victims so tht there won't be any police records.its called the KCAF(Kochi City Action Force)

Generally due to fear of harrasment from the police, but now laws have been simplified and people can help road accident victims without actually getting into any kind of mess.
