    This paper attempts to understand and explain the variation in accident rates among various Road Transport Corporations in India. It is based on data concerning accident rates and safety practices, collected from five Road Transport Corporations selected on the basis of a comparative analysis of accident rates. The reasons for high or low accident rates and steps which have been or can be taken for reducing accident rates in the five Corporations are discussed in detail. Some common measures which may help in reducing accident rates and enhancing safety of operation in Road Transport Corporations are identified.
