  3. 3. The Making of a Silent Tsunami<br />Worldwide, the number of people killed in road traffic crashes each year is estimated at almost 1.2 million, while the number injured could be as high as 50 million – the combined population of five of the world’s large cities.<br />
  4. 4. Source: WHO world report on Road Safety & Injury Prevention<br />
  5. 5. The next Big Wave - Global burden of Road Traffic Injuries and Deaths<br /><ul><li>Every day around the world, almost 16,000 people die from all types of injuries. Injuries represent 12% of the global burden of disease, the third most important cause of overall mortality and the main cause of death among 1–40-year-olds. The category of injuries worldwide is dominated by those incurred in road crashes.
  6. 6. According to WHO data, deaths from road traffic injuries account for around 25% of all deaths from injury.</li></li></ul><li>
  7. 7. Ground Reality<br />LICs’ scenario<br />Poor road conditions – lighting, potholes, unmarked speed breakers, Man made obstacles – multi-type vehicles, cattle/dogs.<br />Encroachment of roads – hawkers, infrastructure deficiencies.<br />Low support from govt./police bodies – focus on policies, not on enforcement/awareness.<br />
  8. 8. City of Bangalore as an Example<br />Unprecedented urbanization<br />Silicon Valley of the East<br />Motorization <br />Changing values of people <br />Population: Over 4 million<br />
  9. 9. City of Bangalore as an Example<br />Need to increase helmet wearing to about 40 % and change would occur automatically after that. we live in a city with 12,92,228 two wheelers (double this covering pillions and triple this including children) out of 17,38,929 vehicles as on December 2002 in a population of 4 million adults.<br />We add nearly 500 new, young and inexperienced drivers onto our roads every day.<br />
  10. 10. Benefits of Helmet Wearing<br />By introducing helmet law in Karnataka ( it cannot be introduced only for Bangalore as per law), the benefits will be reduction of deaths ( 30 %), reduction of severe head injuries ( 50 %), consequent neurological and psychosocial disabilities ( 50 %), extent of hospitalization ( from an average 7 days in severe brain injuries to 3 days for the same ), economic benefits ( the average cost of maintaining a person with brain injury in NIMHANS is Rs. 1572 per hour) and reduction in incidence of skull fracture ( from 14 % to 4 %).<br />Statistics: National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences, Bangalore<br />
  11. 11. About Friends For Life<br />Established in 2002<br />Mission: To build safer, responsible communities<br />Core area: Unintentional road traffic injury prevention<br />Focus on: Communications and Education<br />

  15. 15. What does it hope to Achieve ?<br />Create awareness<br />Increase interaction<br />Initiate change<br />Make people responsible<br />Develop better standards of communications<br />Bring local administration, policy bodies, police together<br />
  16. 16.

  19. 19. Concert at Christ College<br />August 17, 2002<br />Rzhude, Bassist, TAAQ<br />“College kids are easily influenced by fads and fashion, and somewhere along the line most kids who ride bikes seem to gotten it into their heads that it’s not cool to wear a helmet. The obvious safety aspect, is sometimes learnt the hard way, as some of us who have lost friends to bike accidents will testify. If we can change this idea in the kids’ heads at the college level, I’m sure it will make a habit of it in later life as well.”<br />
  20. 20. Concert at Jyoti Nivas College<br />August 19, 2002<br />Bruce Lee Mani, Guitarist, TAAQ<br />“As a bike rider myself, I seriously believe a helmet can make a difference even in a small fall off a bike. The cause that Friends for Life is promoting, could make a difference to peoples lives. We certainly think it’s a cause worth supporting by taking the message with our music to college kids, especially.”<br /> <br />
  21. 21. Concert at Jyoti Nivas College<br />August 19, 2002<br />Rajeev, Drummer, TAAQ<br />“Alongside enforcing clothing rules I think it makes more sense for colleges to enforce a compulsory helmet rule for all the kids who have two wheelers.”<br /> <br />
  22. 22. Concert at St.Joseph Arts and Science College<br />August 23, 2002<br />If you wear a helmet, here are some freebies !<br />Rohit Barker of Radiocity rewards helmet users at the concert<br />

  24. 24. Concert at Bishop Cottons<br />November, 2002<br />Catching them young !<br />If they are receptive at this age, they will surely <br />wear helmets when they grow up..<br />
  25. 25. How is this campaign working ?<br />Joint exercises with Police Departments<br />Traffic signs at important intersections<br />
