As per Crime Record Bureau of India, near around 1, 39,000 people died every year in India due to road accidents and this is called as direct death. This shows only one side of the coin but reality is terrific and shocking, as numerous innocent people are dying indirect death due to road transportation.
Now, you must be wondering what is indirect killing and their reasons.
Transport companies store goods of different categories like soap, detergents, and eatables together at one place in their godown and even load them together in one truck or carrier for transportation and these products being different in nature spoil the quality of each other. When consumers consume these poisonous and affected products, they become sufferer of severe diseases like cancer, food poisoning and others, which most of the times result into death and it is called as indirect death.
Road transporters have to move goods of all categories, including food items, toiletries, and Incense stick. Near about 3-4% vehicles got breakdown during transit, because of which goods are transshipped to other vehicle. During this transshipment, it may be possible that the vehicle in which goods are transferred had loaded urea or any other hazardous chemical before and transporters immediately loaded eatable and FMCG in it, by this, smell of Urea and chemicals get mix with the products loaded in it and spoils its quality and even make the product expired much before their expiry date. Customers being innocent and unaware of this, consume these products and leads themselves to indirect killing.
Figure of indirect killing is exceeding the direct killing and keep on exceeding and will result into havoc, if proper measures are not taken to improve road transportation.
