Road accident deaths in India number the highest in the world. Among these, a very vulnerable segment of road users is constituted of cyclists and in 2011, 6,824 cyclists are estimated to have died in accidents across India. Many of these deaths are attributable to poor road visibility of cyclists. Needless to say, apart from the social trauma caused by these fatalities, the economic loss as a result of the loss of valuable lives is great.
