The problem of traffic management has emerged as one of the most important challenges before the Police all over the country. The ever growing population with phenomenal growth in the number of vehicles coupled with poor road infrastructure is making the job of traffic management all the more difficult. As per the available figures one road accident takes place in the country every minute, and one road accident death every four minute. The analysis of road accidents in terms of causative factors reveals that drivers’ fault is the single most important factor for the road traffic accidents. Drivers’ fault accounted for 78% of total accidents, 74.6% of the total persons killed and 79.8% of the total number of persons injured in road traffic accidents in the year 2010.
