1 person dies in a road accident every 4 minutes in India. Road accidents cause more deaths than natural disasters, diseases, and terror attacks. Road accidents are a leading cause of death in India. In 2015 alone, 1,46,133 people were killed, which translates to 11 deaths per 100,000 people, and 5,00,279 were injured due to road accidents.
