Tamil Nadu had the most road accidents in 2021

Road accidents are an unfortunate reality of driving and the automotive world. However, we must prioritize safety and traffic rules at all costs.

According to National Crime Records Bureau report, Tamil Nadu tops the list of most accidents in India. The southernmost state carries this unwanted record according to 2021 data. It is closely followed by other states like Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh. We should mention here that these statistics represent the number of reported cases. But it often happens that a formal complaint to the police is not filed, either because the loss is not that great or because there is a mutual agreement between the parties involved.

We already know that speeding is the main cause of accidents on the road. Therefore, we must strive to follow traffic rules and drive within speed limits to reduce such undesirable situations. If you drive slowly, the chances of you being in control of any situation increase dramatically. There are cases where people are involved in collisions even though they are not at fault. Additionally, you should encourage people around you to obey traffic rules and report reckless drivers or miscreants who are heckling the roads. This is the only way to protect our roads.
