Why should I care?

  • India has the highest number of road accidents deaths in the world - over 1,35,000 in 2012 alone. On an average, 15 people die and 60 are seriously injured every hour in road accidents in India.
  • 80% of road accident victims in India do not receive any emergency medical care within the critical first hour after an accident. (Study by the Indian Journal of Surgery -2006)
  • According to the Law Commission of India, 50% fatalities can be averted if victims get even basic care on time. That's 70,000 lives!
Road Fatalities
  • While Police first-responders in most states are untrained to provide any medical aid, bystanders and passers-by choose to remain spectators for fear of getting involved in prolonged legal procedures.
  • With emergency medical services missing or inadequate in most parts of the country, Police and bystanders can play a life-saving role for victims if trained and empowered to do so.
