How Much Safety We Have in Road Transport in India Now?
Currently there is a need of the hour to look for causes for the higher mortality rates and aim for the robust design of road transport in India. In the robust design of road transport, three aspects are important: Vehicle, infrastructure, and the driver. Coming to the vehicles, cars available in India are fairly designed for safety from all angles, except few cars coming in to the market without airbags. If the laws are enforced to prevent suppliers selling cars without airbags, we can say that the cars on the roads are designed for safety. The second aspect, infrastructure plays a greater role in reducing traffic mortality rates. China had achieved drastic reduction in traffic mortality that achieves sustainable transportation system. Robust design of road transport is prime importance to travel in safe anywhere.
