Road traffic crashes are one of the world&rsquo;s largest public health and injury deterrence problems. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than a million people are killed in road accidents, each year, all over the world. A report published by the WHO in 2009 revealed that more people die on roads in India than anywhere else in the world. The statistics for India are chilling. At least 13 people die every hour in road accidents in the country; the latest report of the National Crime Records Bureau reveals. In 2007, 1.14 lakh people in India lost their lives in road mishaps. Poor road infrastructure, failure to comply with speed limits, growing drinking and driving habits are among the main factors contributing to deaths from road crashes, WHO said in its report on 'Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2010.<br>
Each year, there are thousands of highway deaths and tens of thousands of serious injuries due to &quot;Run-Off-Road&quot; accidents. Everything from simple driver inattentiveness, to fatigue, callousness, to drunk driving, is responsible. Simple sensors can be fitted inside vehicles embedded with various features like, automatic collision notification, vehicle security, speed control which can give impetus to an efficient road safety system. The features that are proposed in this work are: Automatic collision notification that gives notification to the<br>
victim&rsquo;s relative, Red light traffic control makes sure vehicle doesn&rsquo;t break signal, Speed control alters speed in different zones, Horn control prevents honking in horn prohibited zone, Alcohol detection detects drunk driving and Vehicle security is used to prevent theft.
