Default color for cycles should be changed to yellow. • Tamper proof speed controllers should be made mandatory for all heavy vehicles. New heavy vehicles should have built in tamper proof speed controllers. • Two wheeler manufacturers should be asked to design two wheelers with a designed maximum possible speed of 50/60 kilometer per hour. This limit may be decided based on the conditions of each country. • Day light like lighting should be provided in important roads, especially in roads with two way traffic and in roads without medians, so that head light or high beam can be avoided and a lot of accidents caused by high beam of vehicles coming from opposite direction can be avoided. • Refreshment parlors should be made available at every 50 / 100 kilometer on all highways and important roads. Truck, Heavy vehicle drivers should be forced to refresh by having a face wash or by having a cup of tea or coffee. • New gadgets are to be developed for collision prevention and should be fitted on all vehicles. Research organizations should be asked to develop such gadgets on a war footing. For example, gadgets can be developed to automatically slow down the vehicle, if safe distance commensurate with the speed of the vehicle in front is not maintained. Low cost Anti drowsy gadgets can be developed for warning the driver, when the driver begins to sleep. • Most important method to bring down accidents is strict enforcement of speed limits. Majority of accidents can be avoided by strict enforcement of speed limits. Instructions shall be issued to law enforcing authorities for strict enforcement of speed limits in all roads. • Helmet should be made compulsory by law in all states.

Hence black vehicles, especially cars and motor cycles should be discouraged or future production of black vehicle should be banned. Moreover, black cars consume more fuel to maintain the air conditioner cooling, as black color absorb more heat from atmosphere. Just imagine the amount of fuel that can be saved, amount of carbon emission that can be avoided by discouraging black vehicles in the country. Even if the savings in fuel is as low as a single drop per kilometer, the total savings for the country is going to be enormous. • The color of most of the Containers is very dull. Hence container carriers are likely to cause crash when parked near road side, especially under low light conditions. Yellow / bright color should be promoted for containers, internationally. • Safety awareness should begin from childhood, as it is difficult to impart awareness to a grown up human. If safety awareness is imparted in childhood, safety will become a habit. • Video and Computer games involving Motor Racing should be controlled / banned by Government or discouraged by parents as it will develop racing habit in children. • All sorts of Motor sports, especially racing should be banned by government.

Hats off to Dr. Anpumani Ramdas !!! • Children below a certain age should not be permitted to do cycling in busy roads and in roads where heavy vehicles are plying. Page 2 of 7

Medians should be constructed in roads with two way traffic. • Footpaths and medians should be made mandatory for all important roads and for all new roads. • Zebra crossings should be provided at appropriate places for crossing the road safely. • Signals for road crossings should be provided at important and busy places where a large number of people have to cross the road every day. • Roads should be properly marked.

Sometimes, even cutting of grass to increase visibility can help save many lives. • Low cost Anti drowsy warning gadgets should be developed and made mandatory in heavy vehicles, during night travel. • Low cost tamper proof electronic devices should be developed to continuously record the speed of the vehicle and should be fitted on all heavy vehicles. The devices should be examined in case of accidents – a miniature version of black box of aero plane. • Video cameras should be installed at regular intervals on highways and should be centrally monitored. • All automobile manufacturers should be asked to strengthen safety standards of vehicles by improved design. It is to be noted here that in the series of collisions of 200 plus vehicles at Dubai in 2008, only few people were killed. This is because of the high safety standards. • All models of vehicles should be issued an international safety rating number ( say from 1 to 10 ) based on their safety features, design, build, color etc. Vehicle manufacturers will compete to improve the safety to get top ranking. This will ultimately result in saving of many lives. Customers can easily select the safest vehicle based on safety number. • Union Government should play an active role on state governments to control road accidents. Union government should not say that Road Safety is the subject matter of state governments. • Means of mass transportation like Metro Rail / Suburban Rail etc. should be implemented in all major cities.
