Abstract
The road accident situation in India is vibrating. Records from year 2014 show that there is one death at every 3.75 minutes because of road accidents. The high accident rate is largely considered to the inadequacy of the highways and other main road to meet the traffic in heavy wealth loss to the country. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and non-motorised vehicle occupants are often the most vulnerable. Compared with vehicle occupant casualties pedestrians sustain more multiple injuries, with higher injury severity scores and higher mortality rates. Due to this, road accidents in India have a disproportionate impact on the poor and vulnerable in society. The risks for the road users exists because of the traffic mix highways experience relatively higher road traffic accidents because of lack of regulatory control, high speed, indiscipline, Overloaded vehicles and the like. The present study is a theoretical framework in respect of Road Traffic Accidents in India.
