Study needs on behavioral and psychological aspects of the drivers
Throughout the world, 1.3 million people are killed and 50 millions are injured by road accidents each year. More than 85 percent of these casualties occur in low and middle income countries like Bangladesh. It is predicted that the number of people killed on roads will rise by at least 80 percent over the next 20 years in developing countries like Bangladesh for excessive pressure of the vehicles on the roads and highways and increasing number of the untrained drivers having low esteem in understanding of the values of the human lives. Since heavy vehicles like trucks and buses are major contributors to road accident fatalities in Bangladesh, there needs for systemic behavioral and psychological studies on drivers.
