The police helpline numbers on NH 1 do not work. The numbers 1033 and 1073 are not useable. Whats the need of advertising the same every KM or so when they do not work. This Sunday I was going to Chandigarh when I saw a white colored car do high speed cartwheels and ram into a side wall some good 20 meters from the road. I tired calling the helpline numbers but they wont work. Finally got hold of a Haryana Police NH1 ambulance at a petrol pump some 10 kms from the actual accident site. Told them about the incident and they promised to respond to it immediately. I plan to write to both Haryana Government and NHAI regarding these non operational numbers.

Mumbai - Pune E-way is part of the NH4. In addition to the one given above, these will also work: 98334 98334, 98675 98675

To the best of my knowledge, these 3 numbers work from Mumbai - Kolhapur at the very least; not sure if the Karnataka stretch of NH4 has different numbers or not.

Default Call Centres to Help Accident Victims

Hi All, found this interesting information from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. Hoping that this gets implemented at the earliest.

For those of us, who like driving - if this happens, it will be a positive development towards ensuring safety of the roadies.

Below, text of the release from Press Information Bureau. I have not made any edits.

Default Re: Call Centres to Help Accident Victims

While I am happy with the idea in general, I am not sure how efficient this is going to work.

There is already 108 emergency number which covers major parts of roads. Then, for toll roads there is ambulances and tow trucks operated by the toll operator (May be they would be moved under this umbrella).

Now, consider someone calling up from an desolate highway in MP and trying to explain the location to the call center executive who is located in Gurgaon.

The same way, current 108 ambulances support for emergencies in town / villages along the NH or SH where they are located. Will the NHAI ambulance just support for accidents on highway or for any emergencies (say a heartattack) in adjoining localities?

Wouldn't it been better for the NHAI to strengthen the existing network by donating ambulances / money.

However, as I said earlier, pleased to see safety given consideration.
