India being a rapidly developing country with expanding economy has its own issues as regarding road traffic accidents due to rapid proliferation of motorization. Road traffic accident is a result of an interaction among different factors which include the environment, vehicle and the human being. A road traffic injury is a fatal or non-fatal injury incurred as a result of a collision or incident involving at least one road vehicle in motion on a public or private road to which the public has right of access resulting in at least one injured or a killed person. Socially these accidents are considered as inevitable and a part of life which occur randomly. But in reality, these are results of complex interaction among the public with their vehicles and the existing legal provision. The road accidents are happening most often due to the reckless and speedy driving of the vehicles, not obeying or following traffic rules, the attitude of the right of the mighty bigger vehicles towards the smaller vehicles, overburdens or over capacity hauling of public and transport vehicles, poor maintenance of the vehicles, drunk and driving, driver fatigue and above all the appalling condition of the already choked roads with every inch encroached by unauthorised person and properties.
