Last year, 2000+ pedestrians died on #TamilNadu’s roads. Everyone is a #pedestrian. Isn't it time we enforced pedestrian rights? Calling on citizens, TN govt & municipal corporations to prioritise people over cars.

Social Media Poster: Road Safety - Special Task Force data 2022

The recently published Special Task Force data has added 22,000 road crash deaths to #TamilNadu's road fatalities for 2017- 2020. Last year, the TN #government hinted that the massive reduction in #deaths reported between 2017-2020 had to be rechecked. This addition of deaths is a result of that process. It is good to know that the state has rechecked data & is not hiding the error, but this calls for accurate data collection & consistent action on #RoadSafety.

Social Media Poster: Road Safety - Seat Belt compliance among rear seat passengers

CAG's #Seatelt compliance studies show very poor compliance among rear seat passengers. The unfortunate death of #CyrusMistry highlights that #Airbags work only in conjunction with seatbelts. The law requires you to be buckled up & courts have started to reduce post-crash compensation for those who don't wear safety gear!

Child safety on Tamil Nadu's roads: are we doing enough?

Tue, 06/09/2022 - 13:47

Children are perhaps among the most overlooked Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) in our country. This statement is justified by the scary statistics of India witnessing 11,168 child fatalities on roads in 2019, an increase of 12% from the previous year. Regrettably, Tamil Nadu accounted for 10.3% of the total child fatalities in the country amounting to 1153 deaths on roads in 2019.

Line markings on #Roads keep road users #safe. It is important that they are clearly visible throughout the day & night. Urging local #Governments to adopt safer design practices & not ignore faded line markings.
