India’s road safety problem continues to worsen. This has been revealed by new data from the Road Transport and Highways Ministry. The country’s road crash rate increased 4% over the last three years, according to the Road Transport and Highways Ministry. India has around 400,000 road crashes/ year while around 150,000 people are killed on the country’s roads. The problem is worsening as India’s vehicle population is also growing, increasing in size by 22% over the last three years. The news is a cause for concern and contradicts some previous reports suggesting India’s road crash rate has reduced.
