DUBLIN, January 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Addressing the Road Safety Need in India" report to their offering. 


According to WHO statistics, India is the highest ranked country when it comes to the number of road traffic deaths. Moreover, despite being the 5th largest car market, India is the only country in the top ten car markets to lack proper safety regulations and testing programs. Road safety in India should be of utmost importance and needs to be addressed sooner rather than later in a well-structured and planned manner. Most Indian cars sold in the market are unsafe. 

This has been reaffirmed by NCAP's testing of popular vehicles from popular brands sold in India. Testing agencies such as NCAP had taken base variants of these vehicles and crash tested according to global NCAP norms. The result confirmed what most of the consumers in India have known for long: Indian cars are unsafe. 

However, addressing passenger safety is easier said than done. Approaching it with a narrow mindset and implementing existing solutions such as strapping half a dozen airbags and ABS to a vehicle is unlikely to serve the purpose.
