India is a country notorious for road accidents, resulting in maximum fatalities anywhere in the world on the road. One of the main reasons for such a high rate of accidents is lack of formal training in passenger and commercial vehicle drivers. Maruti Driving School is the largest formal organization operated in collaboration with Maruti Suzuki, India’s largest car manufacturer and various state governments. Mahesh Rajoria heads this chain of driving schools in India and we recently got in touch with him to understand the road safety scenario in India.
According to Mahesh Rajoria, every year 1.5 lakh people die in road accidents in India and 80% of the road accidents are caused due to the driver’s fault. Maruti Suzuki aims to reduce the road accidents by formalizing driving training and impart road safety education.
