Drivers with poor vision leading to more accidents in National Capital Region
New Delhi, the capital city of India and the busiest city in the country has increasing number of road accidents, says a report.
A study done in National Capital Region says poor vision is one the main reasons for 30% of the total road accidents.
Drivers with poor vision or blurred distance vision are likely to get more involved in road accidents.
50% of the drivers in Delhi are suffering from hypermetropia or far-sightedness, and so they are not fit to drive.
Color blindness and glare blindness is another increasing problem responsible for accidents.
To reduce the risk of road accidents, transport officials of the country should take strict actions and do eye health check-up before renewing a license or giving a new one.
Also, making people aware about blindness and vision impairment is important to prevent such miserable incidents.
