Accidents in India ...

IIRC, Sunday BBC Wheels (28-Nov-2004) report said the following :

1. India has the 4th highest accidents in the world.
2. There is a death due to accident once every 6 minutes.
3. Quite a few of these could have been avoided by wearing helmets.
4. Estimated loss due to accidents is about Rs.550 billion (that's the size of the annual Indian defence budget).

Folks,
1. If you drive a two wheeler, please wear a helmet.
2. If possible, please get at least a second hand car.
