Mother India Care - MIC , has been promoting and encouraging Road Safety Awareness program through various campaigns, events and initiatives amongst the general mass. The major cause of road crashes are human mistakes, Risky Road Users are more. The majority of the road users (riders/drivers) are being trained by unqualified trainers of driving schools. Thus with the BASIC TRAINING they get the license they purchase the vehicle and start using the road without obtaining the ROAD SAFETY TRAINING. The behaviour of road users is required to be changed from Risky Road User to Safe Road Users. An informed, trained and assessed road user can be a Safe Road User. MIC has initiated PAN India project for the sustainable solution to improve road safety in India with its 7 Pillars Road Safety Training Module. MIC has launched its National Project - Road Safety is Life Safety and its sub project as "Drive Safe & Arrive Safe" with a goal of ZERO DEATH & NO SERIOUS INJURY IN ROAD CRASH IN INDIA and working as pressure group for road users & civic / competent authorities. MIC is running its nationwide campaigns for assessing road users behaviour, Check Your Road Users Score, maintaining road users scorecard, and also rating of road infrastructure and administration of road traffic management. The project will also provide message alert to road users of SOS crash risk mapping. MIC is bridging the gap between road users, civic bodies and local administration. MIC is committed for the sustainable solution to road safety with the participation and feedback of all concern. Constant and combined efforts of all road users can cause major impact to achieve the set goal of "Zero Death & No Serious Injury in Road Crash in India". MIC is promoting 5th UN Global Road Safety Week, its between 6th May to 12th May 2019 and having a high profile event celebration on 12th May 2019 in Bangalore i.e. International Symposium on Road Safety & Conferring of Award ceremony.

Road Users Feedback (Risk & Demand):
Road users can assess their daily journey / travelling and prepare the details of all those traffic related risks they faced every day, and thereafter can generate their demand to overcome all those traffic related risks. We are also procuring road user's feedback (risk & demand) that include how many road users are supporting for specific demand. Road users can provide us their individual demand and or general demand with the details such as daily distance travelling, road traffic issues on their regular route, risk they face on roads and their demand and also how many road users are supporting for that demand for general demand. We are collecting feedback from road users and forwarding to competent authority for the necessary action, and making them to sign a pledge to address the issues of road users.
