Concern for Road and Pedestrian Safety (CoRPS) is a registered not-for-profit trust, set up with an aim to reduce road accidents resulting in deaths and injuries. We are committed to help improve road safety in India through scientific interventions in the areas of education and engineering aligned with the global Safe Systems Approach.
There are four core values that guide our work
Empathy for all road users
Road as a shared social space - From homeless to the ultra-rich
Road happen to be the only space that is shared among all. We believe that reintroducing roads as a Shared Social Space will help inculcate empathy and fundamentally change our behavior on the road.
Every road user with high hazard perception
Absence of scientific temper among road users brings down a road-user’s ability to deal with the risks. Our approach at CoRPS incorporates science and scientific tools which keeps us focused on safe-systems thinking as we develop interventions to prevent road accidents.
Agency for change
Everyone to contribute to road safety
Education, Enforcement, Engineering and Emergency-Response, each of the 4Es of road safety, has room to build agency among people to find different ways to contribute to road safety. We take ‘building agency’ seriously and hence CoRPS works with all constituencies enabling problem-solving agency in everyone.
Roads to reflect the diversity of public
Currently, road infrastructure in India is largely built keeping in mind a specific user group. We at CoRPS envision a road environment that keeps in mind needs of all genders, castes, communities, persons with disabilities and all age groups.

"People who do not have homes they sleep on the roads every night and hawkers put up their shops on the roads. We should always remember them while driving on roads."
"Road safety rules are made for the safety of our lives on roads and these rules have also been changed for better from time to time. However, what hasn’t changed is our mentality. If children below the age of 10 are made aware abut road safety rules, then growing up they would follow these rules as we all must do."
“The workshop and event held by 3M helped us understand how many cars, motorbikes and pedestrians pass through the junction near our school every minute. We understood the importance of road signs, signals, drainage and sewer systems etc. We now realize the importance of these hings and we will take it forward.”
