As such, most drivers in the city are unaware of handling a mishap or an accidents if they meet with one on the road, reports Debashis Konar of TNN.
The findings are based on a survey that was carried out in five Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore and Ahmedabad in December 2013 by insurance major. Under which, various factors of around 487 car owners and 500 motorcycle owners in the 21-45 year age bracket are taken down. The survey covers just the owner-driven cars.
