Timeline

October - November 2014

In India, Pedestrians, cyclists, motorized two-wheeler riders, and pillion passengers constitute the largest number of those killed, admitted to hospital, and disabled in road accidents. “They are the most vulnerable road users in India, unlike the developed world where motorists are affected the most” - Amit Gupta, additional professor of trauma surgery and critical care at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi.
