New Delhi: Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Thursday said his ministry has set a target to reduce number of road accidents by 50 percent in the next five years.

Addressing a national meet of NGOs on road safety here, he said his ministry has also decided to identify black spots or accident-prone areas on the National Highways and develop them to reduce such incidents.

Gadkari said he proposed to the government to set up a separate ministry for road transport and create a National Road Safety Authority.

He said his ministry has requested to education boards of states and Centre to accommodate topics on road safety in their curriculum. (ANI)
