Mumbai: Road safety regulations and behavioral modifications by citizens are essential for any progress toward reducing road accidents and casualties in India. Over time, traffic accidents in India have become more deadly, with a notable rise in incidents. As always, two-wheelers are the most numerous victims of accidents caused by overspeeding. An incident involving a biker and a car at a traffic signal in Mumbai was captured on camera and recently went viral.

Shocking Accident Video

The discussion that followed about who was at fault when the biker—who was riding on the wrong side of the road—turned, thinking that approaching vehicles with the opposite signal would stop—was what made this incident unique. Unexpectedly, a fast-moving car ignored the stop sign and struck the bike, sending the rider skidding across the pavement.
