Most of Delhi's roads, be it 60 feet and less or more than 60 feet wide, are in deplorable state. Uneven, potholed, dusty, dangerous shoulder drop-offs, broken roadsides and dividers, Delhi roads are always in need of resurfacing. During 2015 Delhi recorded the highest number of 1,622 deaths due to road accidents. Across India, an estimated 10,727 people were killed in crashes caused by potholes, speed breakers, and roads that were under repair or being constructed during the same period, as per data compiled by the ministry of road transport. Actual deaths could be higher as there is no robust and scientific mechanism for data collection. Confusing signage is another major cause of accidents on Delhi roads. Poorly maintained roadways cause accidents in a variety of ways, mostly due to the fact that they create an enormous hazard to drivers. In many instances, a driver may attempt to avoid a certain situation, like a pothole or pooling water which could cause a serious accident.
