India witness a life casualty every 4 minutes in a road accident. The increase in the death ratio is maximum due to the lack of proper aid in time to the road accident victim. Many people are dying every year due to road traffic crashes. Mother India Care - MIC has recognized the importance of addressing road safety in order to reduce the road accident injuries and death. MIC has been pr-eminent in spreading the messages through a wide variety of grass root activities aimed at raising awareness amongst all level of society as to the risks and consequences associated with a lack of safety prevention awareness.
Mother India Care is working as a pressure group and the idea and intention is to educate and encourage the people in general and drivers in particulars for safe driving. Road safety is priority by MIC while driving and riding. MIC has launched its national project "ROAD SAFETY IS LIFE SAFETY" with a goal of ZERO DEATH & NO SERIOUS INJURY IN ROAD CRASH in India. The solution could be derived or the remedial measure could be worked upon if the road commuters are aware about the cause and the fatal consequences of road traffic crashes.
Road Safety is a common responsibility of all road users (individuals, students, professionals, corporate & government) and key stakeholders and all should contribute in their capacity. Government of India has implemented the new motor vehicle act 2019 and increased the panelty amount. This has reduced the accidents but not the fatalities caused by road accidents. Mother India Care has designed a decade of action plan 2021-2030, comprehensive national project on road safety with an ultimate goal of zero death & no serious injury by road crash in India. The road safety Comprehensive national project plan is designed from the grass root level and it has been categorized in 10 Nos. of integrated & auxiliary projects with the methodology to support the development of our master project plan as mentioned under.
2. Decade of Action Plan
Every one minute 1 road crash in India, and every 4 minutes 1 road accident death is occurring in India. Rapid growth in population, urbanization is causing increase in motorization, increase in traffic congestion and road crash incidents. 78% of road accidents are occurring due to driver’s fault and also called as on-road mistakes suicide. When these accidents are caused by human mistakes, then mistakes can be rectified and the road accidents can also be prevented. Government alone can not tackle this disastrous issue. All road users and key stakeholders should make a combined effort to bring a biggest and preemptive change in this human induced disaster. If we want to bring a biggest change, all it depends how many people are supporting and pushing for it. We often chose temporary solution to a problem and that often become permanent problem. Some road users want to be a part of solution and some want to be a problem. We have done the survey and research work and covered all the possible causes of road accidents wherein constant improvement is required in road safety standards. We have prepared a decade of action plan 2021-2030, a comprehensive protocol and research based toolkit on national road safety with a noble & ultimate goal of zero death and no serious injury by road crash in India by the year end 2030.

Road Safety Audit also involves the identification of hazards, who is at risk from the hazard, and an evaluation of the risk in terms of how serious the consequences might be if the hazard is realised, together with how ofen that might happen.
The fundamental goal of the Road Safety Audit is to identify areas within the highway / road / roadside design where there is a potential risk for an incident and then recommend measures that may be implemented to reduce the likelihood of risk.

17. Carbon Emission & Environment Pollution
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is widely considered to be a pollutant, when associated with bikes, cars, lorries, planes, power plants, and other human activities that involve burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline and natural gas in industries and manufacturing units. 1 litre of diesel/petrol produces 2.6/2.3 kg of CO2, and just imagine how many liters of fuel is being burnt in the world as 30 billion tones CO2 is being emitted and how rapidly it spreads around the world. We are polluting our environment and we are liable to compensate. Plant a tree and offset your carbon emission. The increase of carbon dioxide in the air will decrease the quality of air we breathe in, which leads to several respiratory problems including asthma or lung cancer amongst others. Each year millions of people around the world die prematurely from air pollution. Many affected by rising health costs and a decline in quality of life. It is unifying in the threat it poses to people, planet and prosperity.
We appeal all road users, and stakeholders to come forward, join us and participate in the national project to combat man amde national disaster and contribute with your capacity to make a combined and constant efforts. Join us and participate in our road safety is life safety initiative and which is having comprhensive annual plan with the daily/weekly/monthly, quarterly/half yearly/annually activities.
