Road accidents & injuries are a major but neglected public health challenge that requires concerted efforts for effective and sustainable prevention. It is important to teach driver discipline and safety rules. Defensive driving aims to reduce the risk of driving. Drivers must instinctively anticipate dangerous situations and avoid risks while driving vehicles in normal as well as adverse conditions. Defensive driving safety training includes enhancing skills on safe driving, behavior, risk recognition and traffic maneuvering. As a defensive driver, you can avoid crashes and help lower your risk behind the wheel.
Worldwide, an estimated 1.2 million people are killed in road crashes each year and as many as 50 million are injured. Projections indicate that these figures will increase by about 65% over the next 20 years unless there is a new commitment to prevention.
