In a recent survey, Tamil Nadu stands first in road accident occurences. Road accidents are the biggest killers in India and Tamil Nadu has been topping this list for the past 11 years in a row.
Last year, there was a recorded 68,238 road accidents in Tamil Nadu alone. This accounts to 15% of the total accidents that took place in India. 2012 recorded 67,757 accidents. These figures show an increase in accident numbers.
Tamil Nadu stands first with the number of people who lost their lives during accidents as well.
Few of the primary reasons for these road accidents are inexperienced drivers, neglecting traffic rules and signs and over speeding. Driving under the influence of alcohol is also a big culprit.
Since the number of accidents increase year by year, there should be strict enforcement of laws. The drivers should be given basic training and people who get driving licenses should be monitored.
Corruption and bribery plays a big role as well. Government officials who accept cash and citizens who think they can get away by paying bribes should be treated in accordance with the law.
Inspite of all the measures taken to reduce these accidents like regular drink driving checks for example, they keep happening. Even punishments being made harsher seems to have no effect on these increasing numbers and this is surely a big worry for the government.
