These Indian cities rank high on the Road Safety Index

Road Safety Index

What is the best part about a city? The never say die spirit, the safe by lines, the lip-smacking street food or the deep rooted culture? Well, all of these! And more!

Indian cities are an ode to the cultural diversity and harmony that our nation proudly exhibits. It is the people, the places, and the roads that make India a truly beautiful country. Unfortunately, with the good comes the bad, and hence India has been battling the issue of road safety.

Contributing their two bits, Maruti Suzuki in partnership with Times Now introduced a comprehensive Road Safety Index through which the safest and happiest cities are identified and awarded.

Let’s take a look at which city aces and manages to set an example with this pictorial journey.
