said:
“The
good
things
about
Road
Safety
World
Series
is
that
it
has
the
support
from
all
quarters.
It

also
not
just
about
the
legends,
but
a
great
platform
for
the
automobile
industry
and
road
safety
campaigners
to
show
their
commitment
towards
road
safety
using
India’s
most
popular
medium

cricket.

of
an
important
social
message
with
exponential
commercial

Melroy
Dsouza,
CEO

said,
“It
gives
us
immense
pleasure
to
be
part

initiative
like
the
Road
Safety
World
Series
which
is
trying
a
unique
way
to
create
awareness
towards
road
safety
through
cricket.
The
icing
on
the
cake
has
been
the
involvement
of
the
legends
of
the
game
who
have
come
together
not
only
to
spread
this
important
message
of
road
safety
but
to
enthral
the
fans
with
their
magic
for
which
they
are
known
for.”

The
aim
of
the
Road
Safety
World
Series
is
to
drive
social
change
in
the
country
and
change
people’s
outlook
towards
road
safety.
As
cricket
is
the
most
followed
sport
in
the
country
and
cricketers
are
looked
upon
as
idols
by
many,
this
League
will
work
as
an
ideal
platform
to
influence
and
change
people’s
mind
set
towards
their
behaviour
on
the
roads.


WHY
ROAD
SAFETY?

Every
year
India
kills
a
decent
size
European
nation
on
its
roads.
In
India,
one
person
dies
in
every
four
minutes.
Every
hundred
people
dying
in
the
world,
30
are
Indians.
It
is
more
alarming
that
as
per
the
World
Research
Institute,
by
2020,
the
death
toll
in
road
accidents
every
year
will
reach
up
to
2.2
million
and
50
per
cent
will
be
Indians.
Every
year
around
150000
people
are
killed
and
more
than
450000
people
are
critically
injured
in
our
country
in
road
accidents.
