The Zero Fatality Corridor (ZFC) was launched in Delhi recently and as the name suggests, this stretch has been introduced with the aim of reducing vehicle accidents. Read on to know more deets about this awesome new project!

A Much Needed Move | With the rising number of vehicle crashes in Delhi, the Zero Fatality Corridor was much needed. This corridor shall assess the causes for crashes and hopefully bring down the number of vehicle-related injuries and deaths on the stretch between Burari Chowk and Bhalswa Chowk on the Outer Ring Road. The 3 km stretch has four spots - Burari Chowk, Bhalswa Chowk, Jahangirpuri Bus Stand and Mukundpur Chowk, which are considered some of the most dangerous when it comes to accidents.

This model aims at reducing road accidents by 30% by 2020 and will use techniques like the 360-degree intervention, road engineering, police enforcement, rapid emergency care and road-user engagement. After evaluation of the Outer Ring Road stretch, the ZFC model shall be implemented in other parts of Delhi as well.

We call this a brilliant move, what do you guys think?
