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.

Red light runners cause hundreds of deaths and tens of thousands of injuries each year. Due to such serious loss of human lives and economic loss , there is a strong requirement of finding solution to prevent or at least reduce them.

As a reference to above table we can see that the road accidents are increasing day by day in most of the states. Even after implementation of government policies the effect seems to be very minimal so by this we can say that different measures taken to prevent road accidents are just controlling the accident rate but ineffective in minimizing the number of accidents. Government is not solely responsible for avoiding road accidents but it is also a duty of all the pedestrians and drivers to follow the rules and avoid accidents. Causes of collisions The majority of road crashes are caused by human error. Research has shown that driver error accounts for over 80% of all fatal and injury crashes on roads The main causes of death and injury on Irish roads remain speeding, drink driving and non-wearing of seat-belts.
