The subject bill introduced in the loksabha in 2010, if implemented properly, would reduce number of fatal accidents on our national and also State high ways, as the States are supposed to

Post construction audits can be designed taking both traffic law compliance and maintenance of physical infrastructure and misuse of pedestrian facilities, if any.
