On an average, more than 1,37,000 people die of road related accidents in India every year. About 413 road accidents took place daily in 2016 which caused over 1000 deaths in India. These statistics only re-emphasize the importance of road safety measures in our daily life.
In this respect, Indian Road Safety Campaign extends an invitation to the Movie-Making Competition. With the competition centered around road safety, the purpose of the event is to raise awareness regarding road mishaps, traffic laws, emergency services, new reforms etc. across the nation. The movies made by the participants must motivate the general public to adopt safer behaviors to make Indian roads safe and secure. These films will be used for digital road safety awareness on various platforms. So put your film fanatic foot forward and create videos that leave an impression.
The Movie Making competition aims to increase awareness regarding road safety among the participants and the public utilizing a video-based platform. Furthermore, the event is also conducted in hopes that participants reflect on the current issues faced by society relating to road safety and familiarize themselves to become better informed and proactive road safety warriors.
● Consequences of over-speeding: Speeding has been involved in around one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities for more than two decades. Even while driving at the speed limit, but too fast for the road conditions, such as in severe weather, when a road is under repair, or in a poorly illuminated region at night, speed has an impact on your safety. Speeding puts not just the speeder's life at danger, but also the lives of everyone else on the road, including law enforcement authorities. It's a major threat to road safety that needs to be addressed immediately and efficiently.
● Consequences of Drunk Driving: Despite multiple stringent laws, over the last three years, drunken driving alone has contributed to over 30,000 road crashes in the country - directly placing it as one of the primary contributors to the ever-worsening road safety status of India.
● Plight of Vulnerable Road Users: In the event of a road accident, everybody utilizing the roads is at danger of injury or death. Some persons are more vulnerable than others, and are known as Vulnerable Road Users. VRU’s include pedestrians, cyclists, persons with disability who are users of motorized vehicles etc. Hence there is a need to secure road infrastructure with integrated protection for vulnerable road users
● Importance of Golden Hour after road accident: Golden hour is the first 60 minutes post a road accident when necessary medical attention is most likely to ensure survival of the victim. Viewed as one of the most crucial time periods by medical sciences, timely intervention during these minutes can make the difference between life and death.
● Usage of Safety Gears: Despite the fact that cars now have more safety features than ever before, none of these advancements are as important to passenger safety like the humble helmet and seat belt. Unfortunately, many drivers and passengers still choose to disregard this effective injury-prevention technology, putting themselves at risk of serious injury or death.
