Let’s accept it. Most of the educated lot has this popular perception that maximum accidents are caused by drivers who are illiterate or received very less education. We think that, in general, educated people are likely to drive more cautiously, be more aware of traffic rules and would abide by them and would obviously exercise more civic sense. Sometimes this is attributed to factors dependent on education. Therefore, higher the educational qualification of a driver, lower the chance of him getting involved in a road accident. If you nodded in agreement, think again. The data on road accidents in India speaks otherwise.
