Supreme Court issues directions for road safety, asks states to implement policy with \'seriousness\'

Noting one death every three minutes due to road accidents in India, the Supreme Court on Thursday issued 25 directions for road safety and directed all states and Union territories (UTs) to implement a policy on the issue with all \"earnestness and seriousness\".

The court also issued time lines for the implementation of its directions, including setting up of State Road Safety Councils, District Road Safety Committees, Lead Agency, creation of Road Safety Fund and putting in place a Road Safety Action Plan, including Permanent Road Safety Cell.

Impressing upon the states and union territories that road safety has to be taken seriously, a bench of Justice Madan B Lokur and Justice Deepak Gupta also directed for setting up a special force to patrol the National Highways and State Highways for which necessary steps must be taken by the state governments and UTs.
