As per a 2015 report by the Ministry of Road Transport&Highways Transport Research Wing New Delhi the total number of road accidents increased by 2.5 per cent from 4,89,400 in 2014 to 5,01,423 in 2015.
Drivers’ fault has been revealed as the single most responsible factor for road accidents, killings and injuries on all roads in the country over a long period of time. Drivers’ fault accounted for 77.1 per cent of total road accidents during 2015 as against 78.8 per cent during 2014.
The figure reveals the clumsiness of our departments in handling licenses without proper detailing in the ability of driving under certain conditions which can curtail to a certain extent the percentage of accidents.
