All About the present Crash Scenario till 2017

Over 1.2 million people die each year on the world’s roads, and between 20 and 50 million suffer non-
fatal injuries as a result of road traffic crashes. In most regions of the world this widespread
occurrence of road traffic injuries is still increasing. In the past five years most countries have
endorsed the recommendations of the World report on road traffic injury prevention which give
guidance on how countries can implement a comprehensive approach to improving road safety and
reducing the death toll on their roads.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported that 27 million vehicles were involved in over 17 million crash events on US roadways in 2000. During these events, an estimated 2 million occupants sustained injuries requiring medical care,but only 1 in 8 sustained injuries that were considered life threatening.

Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among young people, aged 15–29 years. Half of
those dying on the world’s roads are vulnerable road user: pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.
Without action, road traffic crashes are predicted to rise to become the 7th leading cause of death by
2030. So main aim of indian Automotive Industry is to halve the global number of deaths and injuries
from road traffic crashes by 2020. Passenger cars being the widely used category of vehicles for daily needs; it contributes considerably in these fatalities and injuries. Hence passenger cars performance in accident conditions need to be evaluated both for occupants & pedestrian
