The National Road Safety Policy in India is a comprehensive approach aimed at reducing the high rate of road accidents, fatalities, and injuries in the country. It encompasses a variety of initiatives like raising awareness, ensuring safer road infrastructure, enforcing safety laws, and emergency medical services for road accidents. The policy also includes the establishment of a National Road Safety Board and Fund for strategy implementation. Challenges such as a high fatality rate, shortage of skilled engineers, and unavailability of accurate accident data persist. The way forward involves regular road safety audits, ranking road projects based on safety, developing emergency care services, and implementing strict laws to enhance road safety.
