Earlier in 2017, the number of accidental deaths was 642 and till November 2018, the number is 611.

Furthermore the numbers have been reducing since 2016 and the same growth stunt has been recorded in the number of road accidents registered by the Traffic Police. Accordingly the number of accidents in Bengaluru roads recorded in 2016, 2017 and 2018 stood at 5,333, 5,064 and 4,172 respectively. Additional Commissioner of Traffic Police of Bengaluru told “Our focus is not on generating record fines. We are deploying personnel at accident spots and congested stretches, instead of booking cases".

Moreover according to experts, the congestion on the city’s roads prevents over-speeding during most hours of the day and as a result, has led to a decrease in the number of road accidents. Reports stated the main reason for the reduction in the number of accidents can be explained in the rise in the number of vehicles and the IT city, with an increased migrant population, has seen a massive spike in the number of private vehicles in the city, especially two-wheelers.
