According to Global Status report 2018, 1.35 million people die and almost 50 million suffer because of road crashes. As per provisional data of 2019, 1.5 lakh people were killed due to road crashes in India. By signing the Brasilia Declaration in 2015, India had committed to reduce its road deaths rate by 50 per cent by 2020, but it is nowhere close to achieving it.
What are the main factors for road crashes? How is the law responding to these factors? What are the different aspects of Road Safety which need to be considered to make our roads safer?
A series of meetings of various stakeholders took place across some cities in Maharashtra to discuss these questions and find ways to take effective action on reducing the causes for road crashes. Please find a report on how these stakeholders organised themselves and what learnings emerged from these meetings.” Please find report RSN Stakeholder meetings Report
