Earlier this year, UL partnered with Ashoka, a global network of change makers, and launched the Safer Roads, Safer India: Game Changing Innovations that Save Lives challenge to increase public awareness of road safety challenges, crowd source solutions, and accelerate the rate of positive change. The Safe Roads challenge is part of a pilot being tested across India, with a focus on Bangalore, the country’s third-largest city.

As a first step, UL and Ashoka jointly sourced over 80 of the most innovative ideas that are reducing the number of deaths and injuries on the roads through by activating citizenship, improving governance to be more responsive, updating infrastructure, and using technology to protect drivers, passengers, and bystanders.

The three challenge winners will be announced on September 24th after being evaluated by an expert panel of judges.
