Globally, 1.4 million people die each year in road traffic crashes. India accounts for 10% of those fatalities, and the majority of victims are pedestrians and cyclists. The new (draft) Road Transport and Safety Bill 2014, a huge step up from the previous Motor Vehicles Act 1988, was recently published for public comment by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. Amit Bhatt has been actively involved in discussions around this bill, and presented the details in this presentation, highlighting the salient features and what it would mean for India if this bill were to be passed. The slides address key issues relating to the current situation of road transport and safety in India, and showcase a comparison of the existing Motor Vehicles Act and the proposed bill.
