According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 1.25 million deaths occur and 20 - 50 million more people suffer non-fatal injuries every year globally due to road crashes. Nine countries account for over 60% of global road traffic deaths: Brazil, Cambodia, China, India, Kenya, Mexico, Russian Federation, Turkey and Viet Nam. The five risk factors for these road crashes are speeding, drink &driving, not wearing helmets, not wearing seat belts, distraction and not using child restraints. During these days of globalisation road crashes have emerged as a serious public health problem in the world and also in India. India has only 1 % of world vehicles population but accounts for 10% of world road crashes.
Growth in the number of motor vehicles, poor enforcement of traffic safety regulations, poor quality of roads and vehicles and inadequate public health infrastructures are some of the road safety problems facing in India. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), road traffic injuries are the sixth leading cause of death in India with a greater share of hospitalization, deaths, disabilities and socio-economic losses in the young and middle-aged population. India accounts for more than 200,000 deaths because of road accidents, according to the Global Road Safety Report, 2015 by the World Health
11 teens die every day with the result of texting and driving. 20% of teen drivers involved in fatal by texting and driving. Teen drivers are 4 times more likely to get into car crashes or near crashes when talking or texting on a cell phone. Texting while driving causes a 400% increase in time spent with eyes off the road. There are various findings in the paper which are supported by different research which correlates to the topic of the paper.
More than 100,000 workers annually are injured because of fall accidents. This number is unacceptable and shows the importance of fall protection, prevention, and proper training is to saving lives and reducing injuries (Johnson, 2013). According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, via the 2007 Hospital Trauma Registry, fall accidents are the leading causes of injury in the State of Texas. For 2007, fall accidents accounted for 38% of the reported
The lives of a great number of people every year end as a result of traffic accidents. Authorities stated that at least one traffic accident occurs every minute in the Kingdome of Saudi Arabia. The Kingdome witnesses more than 7,000 deaths, and 39,000 injuries every year (Traffic Accidents Occur Every Minute in KSA, 13 March 2015). Traffic accidents resulted in great economic losses to victims, their families, and their countries. In this essay I will present methods for preventing traffic-related injuries and deaths.
The roads built in many countries, especially in the developing countries cannot accommodate the number of cars, which results in more car accidents. According to ASIRT nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. (N/A, 2014) That is a huge number and it brings a lot of problem to the world. When a car crashes into a an object it will stop suddenly, but the person inside it will keep on
“Only the good die young,” is an aphorism that most have heard, but why is it that the leading cause of death in young people is vehicle accidents? The fact of the matter is that teens, for many reasons, are involved in more fatal crashes than any other age group. Teen driver safety, or the lack thereof, is very problematic in the state of Missouri; teens die senselessly every day due to this problem, and most cases could be prevented if people simply became more knowledgeable. There is a staggering amount of teen deaths every year in Missouri, and the leading cause is car crashes. There are eight broad categories that attribute to this factoid.

There are several reasons behind the road accidents, among these one reason is ‘unfamiliar with the accident prone areas’ and another reason is ‘sleeping during travelling’. It will be helpful if somehow travelers are warned about the danger zones identified as accident prone areas. Accident prone areas refers to these areas where the percentage of road accidents is much high like Dhaka-Chittagong highway.
Nowadays the system used in automobiles are not reliable to much extent, the safety in vehicles need to be rejuvenated in order to ensure full safety of the driver. We have seen a lot many cases especially in india where the drunken driver scene is much trivial. To overcome this hurdle of safety deficiency , we came up with a solution offering full fledge safety of the driver using this system. We have developed few sensor based system in addition with GSM cum GPS system. The system include the use of Carbon Mono-oxide Sensor to detect the excessive carbon exhaust from the silencer of the vehicle ,An Alcohol Sensor to sense the Alcoholic nature of the driver to detect whether he/she is in alcoholic nature or not, a distance sensor to avoid
