rauma centre

The All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC) has demanded that the Maharashtra A?government should speed up the setting up of emergency trauma centres at every 25 kms on the national highways.

AIMTC PresidentA?Bal Malkit Singh said, “Our objective is that victims’ lives are saved during the crucial golden hour after an accident. Most accidents on national highways and expressways are due to human error and involves drivers of trucks and trailers.”

AIMTC has also proposed there should be mechanics to service/inspect vehicles and repair them for any faults. The plan also proposes ambulances, medical units and equipment at the centre. Use of audio-visual aids to create awareness among drivers on road safety and accidents on expressways has also been planned.

These demands come close on the heels of a collision between luxury bus and tanker at Kasa on Mumbai-Ahmedabad highwayA?last month in which 14 people died.
