Photo: Piyush Tewari - Recommendations for a new Road Safety Law

SaveLIFE Foundation, in March and April 2014 organized high-level consultation meetings involving over 90 participants from 10 States across India to deliberate the need for a comprehensive national road safety law and develop specific, actionable recommendations to address 10 key issues identified by experts as needing urgent legislative attention. The meetings in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Chennai brought together Secretaries to Central and State governments, senior Police officers, experts from institutions such as World Bank, Embarq, IIT, IISc, senior lawyers and doctors, and industry and civil society leaders.

The primary recommendation from these meetings was that India needs a comprehensive Road Safety Law. It was therefore recommended that the current Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 be repealed and a new comprehensive law including protection and regulation for all road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and children, be introduced.
