Maruti Suzuki India Limited released a Road Safety Index, a weighted average of scores on important parameters relating to road safety.

The index, compiled on the basis of citizen views and ground-level surveys, rates eight Indian cities on road safety. The cities covered include Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune, according to carandbike.com.

The report is a part of India Road Safety Mission (IRSM), a nation-wide initiative by Maruti Suzuki in partnership with Times Now television. The objective of the report is to lay down parameters which can become guidelines for government institutions, non-governmental organizations, and corporations to improve road safety in the cities covered in the study.

The eight cities selected for the campaign were identified based on population, metro status, and statewide coverage, according to the report. The study was conducted over a period of three months. It considers feedback from 6,000 people representing the population in these cities.

Each city was rated against 11 important parameters impacting road safety: pedestrian rights; road lighting and maintenance; motor laws and traffic control; emergency services; road cleanliness; connectivity; road infrastructure; road safety; differently-abled friendly; road quality and pollution control. The report identifies best performing cities in these categories while bringing out the gaps that need attention.
