Road injury has become one of the grave public health challenges in India. Every year, 140,000 Indians die from road injuries while 30 to 50 million sustain serious injuries. Karnataka, with a population of over 61 million, accounts for the second largest number of road injuries and fifth highest number of road traffic deaths in India. In 2011, the capital city of Bengaluru alone witnessed 6,031 accidents injuring 4,952 persons. This project aims to make select stretches of roads in Bengaluru safer. Activities would include:
 – Source and generate road safety related data from various sources [website, reports, department etc.]
– Develop information for sensitization programs at schools, colleges and for other relevant stakeholders
– Map stakeholders who are crucial to the implementation of the project
