Safer Roads for You

More than 17 people die every hour in India due to road related accidents. It's time to change this now.

Youth between 18-35 are at high risk of dying due to road accidents, with almost 70,000 deaths in 2016 alone.

Talking on the mobile phone while driving and aggressive driving are the primary causes of death on the road.

About 147,000 traffic accident related deaths occurred in India in 2017. That's one death every four minutes.

Over 75% personal vehicle users in India do not wear seat belts which leads to 15 deaths daily.
