About Event

Lack of Road Safety is not only a major challenge however it has deep negative impact and adverse implications on economic, social, and overall development of the economy.
As per the Road Accident Report for 2019, a total number of 4,49,002 accidents took place in the country during the calendar year 2019 leading to 1,51,113 deaths and 4,51,361 injuries. In percentage terms, the number of accidents decreased by 3.86 % in 2019 over that of the previous year, while the accidental deaths decreased by 0.20 % and the persons injured decreased by 3.86. The decline in road accidents, killings and injury reported during the calendar year 2019 appear to have been a result of the Motor Vehicle Act implemented in States w.e.f 1st September 2019 which also focused on road safety.
With the objectives to discuss measures regarding enforcement of safety laws undertaken by Government and boost participation of the Corporates, NGOs, community and other stakeholders at large, ASSOCHAM is organizing a webinar on “Safer Mobility and Responsible Behaviour of Road Users” scheduled on Wednesday, 17th March 2020 .
