Road fatalities currently lead the list of accidental deaths in India, much more than any other accidental deaths like by drowning, fire, rail or air mishaps, etc. At the inquest of the world’s first road traffic death in 1896, the Coroner was reported to have said ‘this must never happen again’. More than a century later, 1.35 million people are killed on roads every year and up to 50 million more are injured. Without action the loss of lives on the roads is expected to be around 1.9 million each year by 2020.
Road Safety is critical issue with more than 1 reported fatality every three minute in India. Thus, there are many dimensions to the problem. Unfortunately, India does not have as many running initiatives or organizations and we too, are not huge to address all issues. Under this programme we thus have focused only on behavioral aspect of driving training, which nobody is currently into and we believe, this is the most critical area which if addressed properly has the potential to significantly bring down casualties.
There are many causes to the accident, but Drivers’ fault has been revealed as the single most responsible factor for road accidents. Drivers fault accounted almost 84 % of total road accident. In many states it is much more in our Country. The drivers are neglected lot. They suffer from public apathy, harassments while driving, get attracted into alcohol, and smoking, STD’s, stress because of long days away from families, and all these contribute to un-safe driving. Behavioral interventions designed in this program can help them overcome some of these by incentivizing them doing it.
