Accidents are avoidable, with little care

Accidents mostly are consequences of negligence or rash behaviour on roads, which people can definitely steer clear of by driving responsibly and in a disciplined manner. This is all the more poignant in face of the fact that close to 80 per cent of the deceased are youth falling between the age group of 24-35 years.

In 2013, as many as 1468 two-wheeler riders were injured while 163 riders sustained critical injuries. The experts said that not following traffic rules was the main cause behind almost all the road accidents.

Two-wheeler riders are easy prey of road accidents. As per the traffic police record, in total 1544 road accidents of two-wheelers were reported in 2013 out of which 66 riders lost their lives. 

The official record of Indore traffic police says that as many as 1424 two-wheeler riders had received injuries in total 1461 road accidents reported in the district in 2012. In this year, 65 riders died while 161 persons sustained critical injuries.

"While analyzing these road accidents, we learnt that around 80 per cent of the deceased were youth. Most of these riders died due to severe head injuries" said ASP Traffic, Anjana Tiwari.

The fact also established the need of wearing helmet while riding on two-wheelers. If these riders had worn helmets, lives of most of the victims could be saved, added Tiwari.
