India witnesses close to 500,000 road accidents every year resulting in over 150,000 deaths, serious injuries and damage to vehicles and insured losses running into millions of dollars. Despite many efforts by the government and various organisations the situation on the ground has not improved much with an average of 53 road accidents happening every hour across the country. A recent World Bank report states that India, with one per cent of the world's vehicles, accounts for 10% of all road crash victims. Building safe infrastructure is one of the major aspects of addressing this issue, the report said.
