National Road Safety


Sadak Suraksha - Jeevan Raksha

Every year, more than 1.50 lakhs people lose their lives in our country in road accidents and many more are debilitated. This causes immense economic hardship and emotional trauma to their families. There is an urgent need to make our roads safer as the loss of lives and limbs cannot be accepted as the price of mobility.
There is a need for the society at large to take cognizance of the issue and to join hands to make road safety a social movement. To give all the stakeholders an opportunity to take part in concerted action for the cause. "Road Safety Week" is observed throughout the country every year in order to highlight and emphasize the need for safe roads. lt is also an opportunity for all stakeholders to contribute to the cause by taking up activities to promote the concept. This year instead of "Road, Safety Week", a month-long campaign "National Road Safety Month" will be observed from 18th January 2021 to 17th February 2021. The theme of this year is, "Sadak Suraksha- Jeevan Raksha".
In order to improve upon the safety of road users and to take effective measures to save precious lives, the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRT&H) has planned to engage with Colleges, Schools, National Youth Clubs, Drivers, RWAs, NSS, NYKS, OEMs, Insurance Companies, Celebrities, Ministers, MPs, MLAs, State Transport Departments, District Transport Authority, Automobile Associations, Consumer Groups, NHAI, IAHE. Indian Road Safety Campaign is leading youth engagement in road safety across the nation.
