                                                  Road Traffic Injury becomes a serious issue in the global development discourse.
It has been reported approximately more than a million of people got injured in
global scenery and more than one lakh people die in road accident annually
leaving a plight full and miserable consequence upon the rest of relatives. It
is also been pried most of the low-income and middle-income
particularly in India the trends of road mishap becomes so rampant and becomes
the center point for degradation of public health.
In accordance with available
figures, one road accident happens in the country every minute, and one road
accident death every four minute. As a causative factor, ever growing
population with the ratio of owned vehicle per se leads to road accident with
poor road engineering. Amongst the states of India, West Bengal stands
thirteenth position in terms of road accident and stands at fourth position
with fifty two per cent fatality rate. The major reason behind this alarming
situation is the poor implementation and the uncertainties that surmount the
legal framework in the country. This paper aims to understand the loopholes of
laws and legislation of traffic management system and address the possible
measure. Secondary data taken from different study, departmental reports has
been used to critically assess the theme. It has found, albeit, it is widely
acknowledged that traffic laws and legislation has been framed to reduce the
road mishap but due to its poor execution and its ineffective awareness, to
some extent negligence of duty bearer and the rash attitude of certain age
groups to the law, claimed to be the major reasons for the violation of traffic
rules. The laws and rules that contribute to the road safety does not delimit
itself on a preventive aspect, but expands into the curative aspect where innumerable
laws exists about health care imparted at the ‘Golden Hour’. As far as a
democratic country like India is concerned
the obligation of the law depends greatly on the peoples’ consent and effective
stakeholder participation in the formulation of a law. The country being a
signatory of the Brasilia Declaration, it becomes mandate for India to reduce
the RTDs by 50% by 2020, thus accomplishing the target of Sustainable
Development Goals.
