New Delhi: A study conducted by the Institute of Road Traffic Education (IRTE) has revealed that in 2017, out of an estimated 146 million road traffic violations (RTV) committed by motorised traffic everyday in the national capital, about 23 per cent were on account of faulty road engineering and environment.

According to the report, in 2017 the estimated number of RTV increased to more than 200 million per day in the national capital and RTV due to poor road engineering was more or less the same. While on the national level, it is estimated that 6.2 billion RTVs are committed by motorised vehicles daily and 1.5 billion are on account of faulty road conditions and traffic engineering.

 

“The recent government contention towards the amendment of the Motor Vehicle Act is to improve the road safety in the country. The worldwide focus of road safety is on the value or manifestation of an efficient and scientific traffic management system with three approaches, including engineering solutions, driver training, road user awareness, and enforcement. But the focus of the present Motor Vehicle Act is on enforcement based on assumption that road environment and engineering solutions are in place,” said Dr Rohit Baluja, president of  IRTE.
