Road Safety Program

Road transport remains the least safe mode of transport, with road accidents representing the main cause of death of people. “In Rajasthan, on an average 9 thousand people die and 30 thousand are injured every year. Total 9528 people were killed of the 22,969 road accidents in 2012 here. The boom in the vehicle population without adequate road infrastructure, poor attention to driver training and unsatisfactory regulation has been responsible for increase in the number of accidents” said Veerendra Singh Rathore, the Rajsamand DTO. In the above context, the responsibility on the stake holders especially the transport, police department and Municipal Corporations have become more greater, he added.
