fear of accident

Nobody is safe in India, accidents dominates all other type of killing.
In India, during the year 2011, there were around 4.98 lakh road accidents, which killed 1.42 lakh people and injured more than 5 lakh persons, many of whom are disabled for rest of their lives. These numbers translate into one road accident every minute, and one road accident death in less than four minutes.

In India, Total Number of Persons Killed in Road Accidents in 2004 was 92,600. It has been increased to 1,25,660 in 2009.
In china, Total Number of Persons Killed in Road Accidents in 2004 was 1,07,000 (it was higher than India). It has been decreased to 67,760 in 2009.

Speed, drunken-drive, not following traffic rules could be the main reason behind accidents. Accidents will become the world's fifth biggest killer by 2030
