India’s roads are among the most unsafe in the world, so how do we change that?

The data shows that India’s roads are among the most unsafe in the world. In 2022, more than 4.6 lakh accidents were reported in which 1.68 lakh people lost their lives and nearly 4 lakh were injured. The impact of accidents is felt well beyond the tragedy itself – the economic loss alone is equivalent to 3.18% of the GDP, or Rs 8.17 lakh crore in 2022-23. Such incidents strain the healthcare system and result in a loss of productivity. Often, it’s families’ breadwinners who perish. So, road safety is not just about saving lives but also protecting families, better healthcare and boosting the economy. Please listen to the latest episode of All Indians Matter.
