India sees more than five lakh road accidents a year leading to 1.5 lakh deaths. According to the Union Transport Minister, this could come down by half if the provisions of this Bill are implemented.

The amendments in the Bill mainly focus on issues relating to improving road safety, citizens’ facilitation while dealing with the transport department, strengthening rural transport, last mile connectivity and public transport, automation and computerization and enabling online services.

Vehicle manufacturers should update their technologies and adopt the best global practices regarding vehicles’ and passengers’ safety. Simultaneously, the rise of Internet of Things-enabled, connected cars in India, which international auto majors are heavily investing in currently, can give a digital edge to road safety.

The unprecedented pace of construction and infrastructure improvement is one more link in the journey to safer roads. Strict and effective enforcement of the amended rules in Motor Vehicle Act would surely help in curbing road-accident related deaths in India. The central and state governments should work out proper plans to effectively implement the rules. State governments should ensure transparency and provide a hassle-free experience for citizens at the Regional Transport Offices.
