Abstract

Road safety is an important consideration in the transportation system. Many accidents occur due to road safety problems. Road accidents in India are increasing day by day, due to the rapid growth in a number of vehicles. The traffic congestion is growing at a rate of 7 to 10 % per annum while the vehicles are 12% per annum, hence this is one of the primary factors for the road safety problem. Every year nearly 1 million people died and 50 million are injured due to road accidents around the world. Particularly in India, 70,000 people died every year, this problem needs to overcome to save the life of the people. In this paper, a survey is done based on the various road safety problems and the comparison is done to identify the problem which leads to major accidents. Here the idea is proposed based on the statistics of the road safety issues to reduce the number of accidents that occur in a year.
