Take a look on below article. . .

India has the second largest road network in the world with over 3 million km of roads of which 60% are paved. These roads make a vital contribution to the India's economy. On the whole, the facilities for the road users are not up to the mark, leading to a high toll of the death victims. Recently, there is a growing concern over the road crash problem.

With the advancement of technology, the most developed projects undertaken along with the real estate are the massive road building projects. But while new roads are being built, faster and faster automobiles are being invented in high numbers making road safety a crucial question.

Road safety is emerging as a major social concern in the country. The statistics are mind boggling with an average mortality rate of 100,000 persons dying in road accidents

According to a survey from WHO, each year road traffic injuries take away lives of 1.2 million men, women, and children around the globe and injure many more. The death toll is on the higher side for the countries where pedestrians, motorcyclists and passengers are vulnerable and vehicles lack the safety norms, like India.

Let's peek into some India related facts:

85% of all road accident deaths occur in developing countries and nearly half in the Asia-Pacific region.

India accounts for about 10 percent of road accident fatalities worldwide.

An estimated 1,275,000 persons are grievously injured on the road every year.

Social cost of annual accidents in India has been estimated at $ 11,000.

Professionalism in driver training is absent, proportion of untrained drivers is continually on the rise and a positive driving culture is lacking.

In Indian perspective safety norms have lagged behind the international standards. Moreover, the international companies launch their vehicles on Indian Roads but somehow forget to implant safety measures that are mandatory abroad. To name a few these include: air bags and censors and many more.really unfaithful that the authorities who have been assigned the duty to look after safety norms on Indian roads have not performed up to their marks. But, enhancing road safety is such a complex task that we all should shoulder the responsibility to achieve success in this area.

Not only this we need to take a look deeply on this road safety eve i.e., Load volume larger than vehicle, improper and over loading, vehicle parking etc.,,
