Till 2020, the government campaign to prioritized Road Safety was only limited to a week. However, looking at the increasing road accident fatalities in India, which has eventually made Indian roads the most unsafe roads in the world, the event was extended from a week to a month from this year.
The National Road Safety Month 2021 was marked in India this year from 18th January 2021 to 17th February 2021. The theme of this year’s Road Safety Month was, “Sadak Suraksha- Jeevan Raksha”. The most important aim of the month-long activity was to encourage governments to make roads safer for all and to take conscious decisions and steps to reduce accidents by generating awareness.
A host of activities by various governments, stakeholders, public and private institutions as well as the common public were taken to raise awareness about road accidents, road safety, and best road practices for all. The entire month saw a plethora of activities that raised awareness about Road Safety. Here are some of the top activities by governments and groups across the country as a part of Road Safety Month!
