India’s Dismal Road Safety Record: One Death Every Four Minutes

Back to ARC

WHO reports that India has a collision every minute and someone dies from a road traffic crash every four minutes. This is equivalent to one jumbo jet carrying 388 persons crashing every day.

With 142,000 deaths in road collisions and other mishaps in 2014, experts say India needs a collective effort to keep up with the UN’s planned commitment of a 50 percent reduction in road fatalities by 2020.
