Well,I guess lack of traffic sense is the most common here.We can not judge when the vehicle infront is gonna feel like taking left or right.The most notorious bieng autos,They can do anything what you can't imagine.
I guess being sensible and alert help most of the times,but to an extent!

Here's a list of Aggressive Driving examples from Mahindra Bolero website. Very true.
Running red lights and stop signs
Passing on the shoulder of the road
Cutting off another vehicle
Slamming on brakes in front of a tailgater
Improper hand or facial gestures at other drivers
Repeatedly honking the horn
Repeatedly flashing of headlights

but in chennai, along with the above, other posing major threat to road users are
call centre and ITcompany vehicles.
college buses, (mahindra) school vans
tipper sand lorries and water tankers
rash driving by the drivers of the abovesaid vehicles can be easily controlled if the traffic police enforce the laws with iron fist.
One of the reasons is not following road rules and manners.
eg driving in a zig zag manner,overtalking from the left,rushing into a
cross road section without atleast slowing down forget stopping,
thinking there is no vehicle beside or behind you ie changing lanes without
looking at the mirrors etc.
reason for other accidents caused by common people (including 2 wheelers, pedestrians)- i agree with sumeet.
