Chennai is the 'Accident Capital' of India
Chennai continues to be the ‘Accident Capital’ of India.
India ranks top with highest road fatalities in the world.
This is a distinction Chennai can do without.
Statistics released on Saturday on road accidents in 2018 by the Union road transport and highways ministry’s transport research wing show that Chennai topped the list with 7,850 accidents in which at least 1,260 people were killed, and 7,438 people were injured.
Capital Delhi, which stood second with 6,515 accidents, however, topped the table in fatalities with 1,690 deaths.
The data shows that the number of accidents in Chennai went up from 7,257 in 2017 to 7,580 in 2018. Delhi, Bengaluru, Bhopal and Indore followed the state capital among cities where the number of accidents rose.
In regard to the number of people killed in road accidents, Delhi (1,690) and Chennai (1,260) are the major cities on the list, with Kanpur (698), Jaipur (692) and Bengaluru (686) following behind. The ministry’s transport wing analysed data comparing at least 50 major cities including Coimbatore, Tiruchi and Madurai.

Re: Chennai is the 'Accident Capital' of India
When the revenue of govt is through 5198 outlets of TASMAC & Police dept protecting the drunkards (with under table business) what else could one expect? Shenzhen?
And here's the state of affairs from neighboring state that gives stiff competition to TASMAC through BevCo - https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...w/72090166.cms
