Concern for Road and Pedestrian Safety (CoRPS) deals with two aspects of road safety - Road Infrastructure and Road Users Behaviour.
CoRPS as a registered charitable trust in the state of Karnataka, India. In Road Infrastructure, CoRPS works in the area of significant changes in road-design to prevent road accidents. In Road-user Behaviour, CoRPS develop soft-skill modules for various road users to develop behaviour of defensive driving and empathetic road-use.
CoRPS engages with:
Elected Political Representatives - to strengthen their leadership on road safety
Resident Welfare Associations - to amplify their voice, concerns and to help them play a proactive role to address road safety in their neighbourhood
Citizen Volunteers - to build champions in the community to continue to question and ensure road safety
Private Sector Organizations - to help develop capacities of the civic bodies and elected representatives, as much as supporting road safety interventions. We also engage with the private sector to help them structure their road safety footprint to help them reduce pressure on the roads as an organization and also prepare staff as responsible road users.
Schools and Colleges - to sensitize institutions on road dynamic and responsible road user behaviour. We also engage them in assessing road risks and developing simple solutions to mitigate them.
Innovators and Engineers - to incubate and help build low-cost, frugal and B2C tech solutions / prototypes to enhance road safety and reduce road deaths and injuries
CoRPS is soliciting support from various organizations to further strengthen its road safety efforts.
We lose 16-20 lives every hour in road accidents in India. CoRPS is committed to make a difference, and our efforts are directly aimed at bringing this number down.
