Hyderabad roads are pedestrian death beds
Lack of footpaths, violation of traffic rules and total absence of road discipline among motorists has made Hyderabad the most unsafe city for pedestrians.
Around 2,000 pedestrians died in 10,000 accidents in the past 4 years in Hyderabad and Cyberabad. Up to March 31 this year, as many as 145 pedestrians died in road accidents and nearly 800 were injured. The victims include children, men and women. It is estimated that 550 pedestrians die in road accidents in the Hyderabad and Cyberabad every year. While Cyberabad accounts for 65 per cent of the fatalities involving pedestrians, Hyderabad roads contribute the remaining share.
