The Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, met Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek Bachchan in Mumbai on Thursday.
Gadkari met the veteran star to seek his support for the cause of the National Road Safety Mission in India.
According to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highway, in India itself about eighty thousand people are killed in road crashes annually which is thirteen per cent of the total fatality all over the world.
In most cases, crashes occur either due to carelessness or due to a lack of road safety awareness of the road user. Hence, road safety education is as essential as any other basic skill of survival.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highway's aim is to provide road safety information for road users to encourage safer road user behaviour among current and prospective road users and reduce the number of people killed and injured on roads every year.
