In recent years, over 150,000 individuals lost their lives due to road accidents, continuing a troubling trend seen in recent years. Data from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) for 2021 revealed that 1.9% of accident-related deaths were attributed to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Additionally, nearly 90% of road fatalities were a result of factors such as speeding, overtaking, and reckless driving. According to World Bank data from 2019, India held the unenviable top position among the 20 countries with the highest incidence of road accidents.
Causes of these accidents include:
1. Infrastructural Deficits: Poor road conditions, inadequate visibility, and subpar road design and construction, including sharp curves on single-lane roads.
2. Negligence and Risks: Factors like excessive speeding, driving under the influence, fatigue, and not wearing helmets or seatbelts.
3. Distractions: The use of mobile phones while driving has emerged as a major cause of accidents.
4. Overloading: Overloading vehicles to save on transportation costs.
5. Weak Vehicle Safety Standards: In 2014, crash tests conducted by the Global New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) revealed that some popular car models in India failed the United Nations’ frontal impact crash test.
6. Lack of Awareness: Insufficient awareness regarding the importance of safety features like airbags and Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS).
Impacts of these accidents include:
– Economic Impact: Road crashes cost the Indian economy between 3 to 5 percent of GDP annually, according to the World Bank.
– Social Impact: Road accident fatalities place a heavy burden on households, with each death depleting approximately seven months’ worth of income in impoverished families, often leading the victim’s relatives into cycles of poverty and debt.
– Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs): VRUs, primarily consisting of economically disadvantaged, working-age males, bear a disproportionately high share of road accident deaths and severe injuries in the country.
