Since we have lack of infrastructure development, hundreds of
accidents happen every day. Accidents, tragically, are not often
due to ignorance, but are due to carelessness, thoughtlessness
and over confidence. According to a report of the ministry of road
transport, pedestrians were the most common victims of road
accidents and 41 per cent of deaths that occurred on the roads
were of people hit by vehicles while crossing or walking by the side.
Also, 12 per cent of deaths were of cyclists hit by heavy vehicles.
Similarly, 24 and 12 per cent of deaths involved motorcycles and
cars, respectively. Moreover, there was one death on the roads
every six seconds and majority of them are the students.

oncoming vehicles. Trustees of the
