1. The global annual cost of RTA is almost 230 billion
2. 1.2 million people Die every year due to Road Traffic
3. Every day, there are 3300 deaths and 6600 serious
injuries on the road in the world.
4. Approximately 850,000 deaths occur in those who
are under 45 years of age in developing countries and
are the sole bread-winners for their families.
5. Road Traffic Accidents cause injury to about
50million people in the world.
Three factors contribute to the
vast majority of collisions. In
ascending order they are:
1. Equipment Failure
2. Roadway Design
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.
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
1)Existing speed limits should be brought down
2)Heavy penalty should be imposed for those who
3) Diving tests for issue of Driving license is to be
4)Lower age limit for two wheeler and Heavy Vehicle
license should be raised to 21.
5)Existing traffic rules should be strictly enforced.
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
2. Mechanical Failure
Many train accidents are
caused by mechanical failure. These
failures can include broken
warning lights or safety can prevent.
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.
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
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.
