70% Rise In Towing Assistance Queries Post-Accidents On Highways

AUTO i CARE received more than 22000 calls during night time for towing assistance after an accident or car breakdown from across the country from November 2020 to date

Around 1.50 lakh people die in road accidents every year. Maharashtra saw a fall in accidents last year, with around 25,000 reported accidents which is a drop of 36 percent from 2019 but still, the state is in the top two in road fatalities.

Since November 2020, the AUTO I CARE app, a 24-hour car repair service provider, registered over 1,10,000 queries on their helpline out of which 70,000 calls were for towing of vehicles involved in an accident. The number is shockingly high at 70 percent, which could be due to people starting to take road trips post lockdown. To spread awareness on the need for road safety, the Maharashtra government is observing National Road Safety Month from January 18.
