SIAM has embarked upon a unique Vehicle Safety Lecture Series for integrating and mainstreaming the road vehicle regulations and standards imperative for attaining safer roads and accident free mobility. The previous 1-5th environment lecture series in August-October 2020 and were highly appreciated and acknowledged. In continuation, SIAM has proposed to organize 6th 7th and 8th Tri-lecture series on the highly pertinent theme i.e.on   “Active & Passive Vehicular Safety Standards


As you may be aware that vehicle safety is an urgent health and development matter across the globe. A high number of deaths on the world’s roads, an estimated 1.35 million people killed each year. In addition, as many as 50 million people are injured. On average, they cost countries 3% of their GDP. At the National level, a total 4,37,396 road accidents were recorded in 2019, resulting in the death of 1,54,732 people and injuries to another 4,39,262, which enormously high and needs urgent redressal.


With the objective of minimizing the road accidents, India’s interventions on vehicle Safety include seat belt reminder, air bags, speed alerts, reverse cameras, anti-lock braking systems, a strong advocacy policy etc. The most important initiative being the Motor Vehicle Amendment Act 2019 which, inter-alia, provides for a stiff hike in penalties for traffic violations. The Government is also working to improve the quality of accident data collection with use of IT based systems which would also help in getting the real-time causative analysis of the road accidents.


SIAM being highly conscious of social, environmental and sustainable mobility issues had launched an environment and vehicle safety lecture series on WED-2020 to create requisite awareness and knowledge dissemination to protect environment and minimize road accidents including deaths and injuries.
