The Achievement of Traffic & Highways, Karnal

Road accidents are a human tragedy. It involves high human suffering and monetary cost in terms of premature deaths, injuries, loss of productivity etc. Most deaths and injuries due to road accidents are invisible to society. They are a hidden epidemic. In the last few years traffic on the National Highways/State Highways increased manifold and so have the accidents. Every year more than 1.00 Lacs fatal accidents occur on Indian roads, more than 4.00 Lacs persons are injured and the economic loss due to road accidents is estimated to be over Rs. 36,000 crore. 40% of these accidents take place on National Highways.

It will be pertinent to compare the number of people murdered and the people who die in accidents every year. About 20,000 people are murdered in a year in India. It is evident that the number of people killed in accidents is five times more than that  those are murdered.  On the National Highways/State Highways passing through the State of Haryana, more than 4,000 persons are killed and nearly 8,000 injured every year. The vehicular population in the country has also increased manifold. Thus, it is very much necessary to regulate the traffic movement on National Highways.

Keeping in view the seriousness of the problems, the Government of Haryana in its meeting held on 20.04.2000 under the Chairmanship of PSCM established a new Division within its Transport Department called “Haryana Highway Patrol for Road Safety” (HHPRS) under the control of Superintendent of Police, with Hqrs. at Karnal. 19 Traffic Aid Centres (TAC) have been established at a stretch of every 30 Kms. along the five National Highways i.e. National Highway No. 1, 2, 8, 10 & 22. Now these Traffic Aid Centres have been converted into 22 Traffic Police Stations and 5 Traffic Police Posts and the post of Superintendent of Police, Haryana Highway Patrol for Road Safety has been re-designated as Assistant Inspector General of Police, Traffic & Highways, Karnal, under the control of Police Department.
