With 22,300 road accident deaths, Uttar Pradesh tops India list
Uttar Pradesh with 22,256 causalities topped the chart of road accident deaths in India in 2018. On an average 60 road crash deaths were recorded in the state everyday. The state was at the top of the same list in 2017.Though Tamilnadu (Rank 1) and Madhya Pradesh(Rank 2) recorded in comparison to UP(Rank 3), the number of fatalities in these states were lesser than Uttar Pradesh.
In 2018, a total of 63,290 accidents were reported in Tamil Nadu which was 50 % more than UP but the number of deaths was 39% lesser than UP. Experts attribute the higher number of deaths to poor referral systems.
