Road Traffic Accidents cause injury to about 50million people in the world.
  2. 2. Three factors contribute to the vast majority of collisions. In ascending order they are: 1. Equipment Failure 2. Roadway Design
  3. 3. Manufacturers are required by law to design and engineer cars that meet a minimum safety standard. Many companies have produced safe vehicles that are easy and safe to drive. The most cited types of equipment failure are loss of brakes, tire blowouts or tread separation, and steering/suspension failure.
  4. 4. Motorists may blame roadway design for accidents, but it's rarely the cause. Civil engineers, local governments, and law enforcement agencies all contribute to the design of safe road layouts and traffic management systems.
  5. 5. 1)Existing speed limits should be brought down further. 2)Heavy penalty should be imposed for those who cause accidents. 3) Diving tests for issue of Driving license is to be more challenging 4)Lower age limit for two wheeler and Heavy Vehicle license should be raised to 21. 5)Existing traffic rules should be strictly enforced.

  9. 9. 1. Lack of Maintenance As with many other causes for train accidents, human error does come into play. Sometimes major accidents happen that could have been completely preventable. 2. Mechanical Failure Many train accidents are caused by mechanical failure. These failures can include broken warning lights or safety can prevent.
  10. 10. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a person is 40 times more likely to die in a collision with a train than a collision with another vehicle. In 2010, more than 2,800 train wrecks and rail-way collisions were reported. Of the train wrecks, 157 occurred in Texas—the most in any state.
  11. 11. 1. A no. of Safety drives at regular intervals are carried out by police and supervisors to improve awareness among station to prevent accidents. During the drive Police and supervisors travel extensively during night and day, by engines as well as in guard vans. They meet station working in the field and explain finer aspects of safety. 2. A no. of Safety seminars are conducted on various safety sensitive subjects to improve awareness among Railway station as accident prevention measure. 3. In House Safety bulletins are published, in which finer aspects of safety are discussed in detail.
