Road Safety Education and Awareness program in Rajasthan State, India – a World Bank funded project

Members of ArriveSAFE are meeting Senior Officials and holding Silent Protests demanding that the accused of “Hit-and-Run” be booked under Section 304 of the IPC, which provides for a 10 years’ imprisonment instead of the customary practice of imposing Section 304-A, which is a bailable offense. Further Section 279 of IPC for Rash and Negligent Driving and Section 134 of the MVA (The driver instead of informing the authorities or providing medical attention chose to run away) should also be imposed on him.

ArriveSAFE is also demanding that once the driver is arrested, his accomplices and family members should also be booked as they helped the accused driver by sheltering him.
