Navin Kumar, Manoj Kumar


Abstract: Road traffic injury related deaths can be considered interplay of increasing speeds and rising traffic volume on our roads. Present study considers various circumstances and in depth analysis of fatal road accidents. This study on 100 fatal cases is an attempt to interpret various aspects of this so called rising pandemic of modern society. Out of 100, 88 % were male, 12 % female. Pedestrians and two-wheelers rider victims were 37 % each. City roads and lanes were invariably equally risky since morning peak traffic hours till midnight. Highways were riskier since afternoon till late midnight hours. In 54.8 % on the spot death cases heavy motor vehicles were the offenders.84.1 % cases opted for treatment at tertiary centers. Injuries to chest/abdomen/pelvis proved to be fatal within 1 day. Deaths on the way to hospital were due to coma and hemorrhagic shock. These facts highlight the need for availability of prompt resuscitative measures and an approach of zero tolerance for traffic related hazards.
