Cars use 90% of road space to move 10% of passenger load

Campaign to promote walking, cycling, bus ride - Free Press Journal: "In India around 140,000 people die in road accidents each year. Vehicles are also the biggest polluter as they contribute around 70 per cent of air pollution in the country.

The National Urban Transport Policy has advocated for giving priority to non-motorised forms of transport.

At present, cars occupy around 90 per cent of the road space while carrying only 10 per cent of the passenger load."
