Through its con­sis­tent ef­forts, the IRF as­sists Gov­ern­ments in var­i­ous ways to achieve the ob­jec­tives of re­duc­ing Road Traf­fic fa­tal­i­ties. The pres­ti­gious WRM is held once in ev­ery four years in dif­fer­ent cities across the world. Since In­dia has the sec­ond largest road net­work in the world, it paved the way for be­ing the venue of WRM 2017.
