Motor Cyclists do not want to wear helmet and drive. Car Owners do not want to wear seat belts and drive. No vehicle owners have patience to wait for the green light to flash in the signal. Overtaking on the left side, jumping the signals, talking over the mobile phone and driving, is a regular scene on the roads.
About 14 deaths are taking place every hour. With the help of local NGO Partners, Manav Charities is aiming to bring down the accidents that are taking place in this country.
