India's diverse roads reflect the country's vehicular movements, yet the absence of dedicated corridors for specific vehicle types, coupled with freely wandering livestock, leads to chaotic situations. With a rapidly expanding road network and the addition of numerous passenger and freight vehicles, India has gained global notoriety for a substantial number of road accident deaths.
Lack of stricter legislation, punishment, and awareness among the masses further contribute to non-compliance with road safety rules. Effective road safety management requires a partnership between the government, corporate entities, and a technically proficient organization with international standards expertise. Addressing this issue necessitates collaboration and adherence to proven practices in order to create safer roadways in India.
