A draft policy on road safety, placed in the public domain by the Delhi government's Transport Department, identifies encroachments as one of the reasons behind road accidents and calls for recognition of rights of pedestrians.

'Google Street View can map travel patterns in cities' 4.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Google Street View has the potential to estimate how common cycling is in cities, and potentially other travel patterns too, a study has found. The analysis of 2,000 Google Street View images from 1,000 random locations in each of 34 cities in the UK found strong agreement with data on cycling, and public transport and motorbike use, said researchers from the University of Cambridge in the UK. The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that physical inactivity claims up to 3.2 million premature deaths across the world including 2.6 million in low- and middle-income countries, they said. Increasing active transport, such as cycling or walking, is one way to improve physical activity levels in a population, according to the researchers. To understand and improve urban travel, data is needed on modes of transport used. However in most countries, up-to-date, accurate data is often not available at the city level. Recently researchers have turned to big data sources to estimate walking, cycling, and ...
