Pedestrian Safety

We are all pedestrians. Walking is a basic and  common mode of transport in all societies around the world. Virtually every trip begins and ends with walking. Pedestrians are a highly diverse group and the most vulnerable road users. The group includes children, older people, teenagers, joggers, the disabled and mobility impaired, and some may be using wheeled toys or recreational devices such as skateboards, rollerblades and foot scooters.

Pedestrian Safety – as a driver you have responsibility

Pedestrian Safety – as a driver you have responsibility
Pedestrians are not just ‘traffic’ — they are people. They are unpredictable, and the younger they are the faster they are likely to move or change direction. Those with children, the elderly, the blind and the disabled all need your care.
As a driver you have the legal and moral responsibility to take proper care to avoid accidents with pedestrians at all times and places — even if the pedestrian is jaywalking. Always try to give way to a pedestrian on the roadway

How to help road accident victims

It is very important that victims should get help in first hour after accident. First hour is very critical for any road accident victim. If medical help is provided in first hour most of the lives can be saved that is why it is called GOLDEN HOUR.

Put on emergency light in your vehicle and stop on a safe place. This will alert other drivers.
Call the police and/or Ambulance
Do not touch, turn the victims if you are not trained in first aid.

Why Road Safety

Why Road Safety Matters

Road safety is a matter of paramount importance that directly impacts the lives of every individual in India. Our daily lives revolve around the use of roads – whether it's commuting to school, work, medical appointments, shopping, or even leisure activities like going to the cinema. As commuters, we wear various hats – drivers, passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians. For many, driving isn't just a mode of transport; it's an integral part of their livelihood. Thus, ensuring the safety of our roads is a shared responsibility that concerns us all.

The consequences of road accidents, both in terms of human lives and economic losses, are staggering. What makes this issue even more distressing is that a substantial portion of these accidents is entirely preventable. Often, the root causes can be traced back to a lack of awareness about traffic regulations, the willful disregard of traffic rules, inadequacies in road design and construction, and unsafe driver behavior. Yet, by joining forces and channeling our collective efforts, we have the power to surmount these challenges.

Statistics reveal that approximately 82.4%* of road accidents can be attributed to errors made by road users themselves. This underlines the significance of fostering responsible road user behavior as a top priority. One effective strategy is to initiate comprehensive road safety awareness campaigns that not only educate but also influence public perception and conduct.

At Road Safety Awareness, we're dedicated to promoting a culture of safety on Indian roads. Through strategic campaigns, informative resources, and collaborative initiatives, we aspire to transform the way people perceive road safety. By equipping individuals with knowledge, nurturing a sense of responsibility, and encouraging adherence to traffic rules, we envision safer roads for everyone.

Join us in this mission to make a difference. Let's work hand in hand to build a future where road safety is a shared value and preventable accidents become a thing of the past.

Remember: Your Safety is your Responsibility.
