Road safety


Though the human factor is often cited in fatal road accidents, one cannot overlook poor road infrastructure as another major cause. Data from the Public Works Department last year, on Delhi’s roads, showed an average of 2,000 potholes along the main roads. There were also broken footpaths, dislocated kerb stones and trees affecting traffic. India ranks very high in road accidents if one accesses data from the International Road Federation, Geneva. In a review of accident prevention, there has to be a holistic view of all factors.
