We are all pedestrians, and our safety on roads should be our priority. In India, more than 25,858* pedestrians die on the road every year, which is almost 17% of the total road crash fatalities. Most of the pedestrian collisions occur while pedestrians are crossing the road, and some of these collisions occur to students on the way to their school and colleges, which is absolutely avoidable.
*According to ‘Road Accidents in India: 2019’ report published by MoRTH, India
