The UN General Assembly has passed a resolution proclaiming a Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, which aims to save lives by halting the increasing trends in road traffic deaths and injuries world-wide. India has the highest annual road death toll, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). More than 130,000 people die each year across the country in crashes caused by speeding, bad roads, overcrowding and poor vehicle maintenance and a million get maimed. This amounts to nearly 3% GDP loss.
In India, road safety has finally found its way to the Parliament. The National Road Safety and Traffic Management Board Bill, 2010 was introduced in the Lok Sabha on May 2010 by the Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Shri Kamal Nath. Referred to the Standing Committee on Transport, Tourism and Culture, this bill is founded on the report of a committee on road safety and traffic management, which was set up under the chairmanship of Mr. Sanjivi Sundar, Distinguished Fellow, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), Former Secretary, Ministry of Surface Transport, Government of India.
Mr. Sundar will be the Conference Chair of the 4th National India Roads Conference 2011.
