Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) are becoming an ongoing progressive disaster causing injuries, deaths, loss of quality of life due to disabilities and property losses leading to short term and long term impacts to the individuals and to the society. RTC has become a burden which is neglected by both locally and globally.
