Description

Traffic accidents are a major cause of death in low-income countries. India's urban transport policy focuses on continuous road building and ignores the long-term impacts of more roads, preferred modes of transportation, and lack of pedestrian access. To reduce traffic fatalities, an integrated and sustainable urban transport policy must restore pedestrian accessibility and minimize dependence on motor vehicles.
