1.5 million dead in a decade: Just what is wrong with India's roads and vehicles? - Quartz

In September 2017, three boys raced a car on a highway in the city called India's Hooser, one of whom died. In the rain, boys ran at 150 km / h on a road not lighted because of electricity accrual. One of the three boys thrust into the railroad on the highway and the car that bounced off the railings thrust into the obstacle at the end of the road at a tremendous speed. The boy 's head was cut off because it was out of the window of the car. Also, another car collided with the truck across the median strip, but fortunately it was slightly wounded. Although the third car also got into the median strip but it seems to have stopped, but the shocking news that a 17-year-old boy is cut off his neckGreat report in India.

Indian NPO / NGO organization preaching traffic safetySaveLIFE FoundationSaid a is Piyush Tewari's is the founder, the poor of India's traffic situation is technology that is required is limited to that related to mechanics in the acquisition of the license, to be because the "safe driving" is not sought It is. "If you cross the hands of untrained people, cars will become weapons." Tewari's cousin also died in a traffic accident and after his cousin 's death Tewari abandoned the way to build her own property and is dedicated to traffic safety in India. Since it was founded in February 2008, we have carried out training for the private sector, banned trucks overloading, etc. We have produced many achievements, and have won numerous awards as well. Tewari says he calls Indian traffic accident "pandemic". As of 2017, the SaveLIFE Foundation is aiming to pass the bill for safe driving as one of the goals.

Tewari says that an inefficient system is used by India's Road Transport Bureau nationwide for bribery. According to the report of 2007, the cargo industry is bribing nearly 3.4 billion yen annually, and it is reported that 45% of the bribes are paid by the police to the Ministry of Road Transportation for 43% or more. Therefore, it is necessary to clarify inexperienced drivers first, then liquidate the bribes received by officials. At Indian local rural Passport Bureau, outsourcing many of his duties to Tesla, it seems that technology has been introduced, bribery has been reduced, and discretion is limited so that it functions relatively efficiently, The Road Transportation Bureau also needs such reforms.

Unlike the Passport Bureau, which is the jurisdiction of the central government, the Road Transport Authority is the jurisdiction of the province, so it is relatively easy to get into reform, and if one state reviews the Road Transport Authority it is seen that other states will conform to that I will. If you can apply for a driver's license or submit materials from the application using technology, or if you can acquire skills of safe driving using a simulator, the situation may improve.
