India has the highest number of road accident deaths in the world – 18 fatalities every hour on average. The social and economic impact of this epidemic is devastating – it is the biggest killer of Indians in the age group of 15-45, and usurps 3% of India’s GDP annually. Yet most of these accidents are preventable. More than 70% of road accidents in India are attributed to driver error. With extremely poor driver’s education, most drivers just don’t have the skills they need to safely navigate the roads. Learning the basics of operating a vehicle isn’t enough. Drivers must know how to anticipate dangerous situations, analyze road conditions, and adjust their behaviour accordingly – the basics of Anticipatory DrivingTM.
The Anticipatory Driving & Accident Prevention Training (ADAPT) certificate programme has been developed by SaveLIFE Foundation after extensive research and development lasting over two years. As part of the programme’s development, core issues surrounding road safety in India were studied at length and so were international best practices in driving and overall road safety. The two were then mapped together to develop the most suitable training solutions to India’s driving problems. The solutions are formatted in a way that any driver regardless of education or economic level can understand the concepts behind Anticipatory Driving and put them to practice. The programme is heavily focused on day-to-day situations that drivers encounter but may not be able to cope with, and also covers some special scenarios such as driving in extreme weather conditions.
