Mumbai-Pune expressway study reveals startling safety statistics
Non-usage of seat belts were, at least in part, responsible for as much as 46 percent of serious to fatal road accident injuries on the Mumbai-Pune expressway between October 2012 and October 2013.
This, and other chilling facts, have come to light following a study by independent crash investigation firm JP Research India.

The study involved an in-depth analysis of 214 accidents, of which 68 resulted in serious (requiring hospitalisation for over 24 hours) or fatal injuries. On the basis of the investigations, the human, vehicle and infrastructure factors contributing to the occurrence of the accidents, and to injuries sustained thereafter, have been identified.
