About "31st National Road Safety Week 2020"

You may be aware that over 1.51 lakh people lose their lives every year in our country in road accidents and many more are debilitated. This causes immense economic hardship and emotional trauma in their families. There is an urgent need to make our roads safer as the loss of lives and limbs cannot be accepted as the price of mobility.

The Central and the State Governments have been implementing various measures to make our roads safer. But the magnitude and gravity of the problem are such that these alonewill not suffice. There is a need for the society at large to take cognizance of the issue and tojoin hands to make road safety a social movement.

To give all the stakeholders an opportunity to take part in concerted action for thecause. "National Road Safety Week" is observed throughout the country every year in order to highlightand emphasize the need for safe roads. It is also an opportunity for all stakeholders to contribute to the cause by taking up activities to promote the concept. The 31st Road Safety Week will be observed from 11th January to 17th January 2020.
