Road Accidents in India Kill More Than 2 Lakh People

Back to ARC

India accounts for more than 200,000 deaths because of road accidents, according to the WHO Global Road Safety Report. The report states that the Indian road safety laws do not meet the best-practice requirements for four out of five risk factors: enforcing speed limits, prevention of drink driving, safety of children and use of helmets. Even for seat-belts, where the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988 is in consonance with the WHO standards, the enforcement is poor and India has a pathetic score of four out 10. With respect to vehicle safety, India meets only two out of the seven vehicle safety standards, said Piyush Tewari, Founder and CEO of SaveLIFE Foundation.
