Why Report a Truck?
Every year over 9000 people are killed and over 30,000 people are seriously injured in road accidents involving trucks carrying protruding rods. In 2015, out of all road accident deaths involving trucks over 59% deaths were reported by trucks carrying protruding rods.
vehicles carrying protruding rods have been reported by citizen volunteers since the initiation of the drive.
The violation details along with corresponding pictures have been sent to local Police with copy to State DGPs and Home Secretaries.
SaveLIFE Foundation has taken the initiative to stop trucks carrying protruding rods ply on roads and prevent road accident deaths and injuries in India. In response to a Writ Petition filed by SLF before the honorable Supreme Court of India, on March 5, 2014, the Government struck down the proviso to Rule 93(8) of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, which allowed for protrusion of sharp loads for upto one metre beyond the rearmost point of the motor vehicle, effectively banning the practice.
Help us by reporting trucks that you find carrying protruding rods.
