With strong Good Samaritan Law (where basic legal protection is provided for those who assist a person who is injured or in danger) in place and the law having support of Supreme Court Committee on Road Safety, volunteers are spending time during rush hours to adopt soft reminders to the public to wear ISI mark helmets and tie the straps, use seat belts, slow speeding in vehicles and limit intake of alcohol by citizens that will sure result in reduction in mortality rates in accidents.

In the same context, we at Sahayta, an NGO in Jaipur, Rajasthan advocate that only when the public knows what is to be done instantly at an accident site will they be able to save lives. As opposed to Good Samaritan, this process is technical and only has a medical component so it has to be adopted with precision as per guidelines. We believe that creation of a picturised voiceover module for the same should be mandatory for everyone in the country. If this module is made available as a digitized app, we believe it would reach the youth and getting the support of the youth of India as volunteers would greatly spread awareness about our cause.

We aim to spread this message far and wide through:

  • 1) Mohalla Accident Assistance Membership (MAAM)- We advocate people to become members of MAAM and through the DVD, spread this awareness to others as well. We also organize a monthly MAAM meeting at office premises.
  • 2) Basic Life Saving (BLS) Course- Having developed a BLS course on how to save the life of a road accident victim message is being spread in the rural sectors through a voiceover DVD made by us.
