Why is OK painted on the back of almost Every Truck in India?
One thing you will find common in trucks all over India is that the HORN OK PLEASE be written on the back of every truck.
The practice of writing this 3 word on the back of the truck started before independence when only kerosene in the form of fuel was present in India.
And people used only kerosene for both their domestic and commercial work.
Kerosene is a highly flammable A9 fuel, and at that time trucks often caught fire due to this fuel.
So trucks or any other vehicles were advised to keep a proper distance from each other.
That is why OK was written on the back of every truck which meant on kerosene.
And if any vehicle overtakes from the truck, then before that, play the horn, that’s why the HORN PLEASE also be written.
A lot changed over time but these 3 words written on the back of the trucks did not change, and today when most of the trucks are driven by diesel or CNG, people are still writing these 3 words.
Because most truck drivers and owners feel that if they do not write these three words, their truck will look different.
