According to the World Health Organization, India and other countries in Asia will witness a staggering 65% increase in vehicle population by 2020. While India is home to just 1% of the global vehicle population, the country accounts for 10% of road accidents worldwide - a telling statistic on the vehicle safety quotient.

Over 33% of all vehicular accidents occur at night while only 20% of all vehicular traffic travels after nightfall. What’s more, traffic death rates are three times greater at night than during the day.

Why vehicle safety?
While India is home to just 1% of the global vehicle population, the country accounts for 10% of road accidents worldwide. Major portion of these vehicular accidents, especially the fatal ones, occur at night.

Major factors that affect vehicle safety
During nights, the visibility of vehicular body is poor and hence information/cues available for the human eye are minimal. Poor visibility of vehicles during night is one of the major causes for vehicular collisions/accidents during nights.

As such, good night time visibility is critical to ensuring vehicle safety.

3M™ Solution: Conspicuity Sheeting
3MTM offers high visibility conspicuity sheeting solutions which can be applied on wide variety of vehicles to significantly enhance their night time visibility.
