Globally, governments are pitching forward for a novel initiative of decreasing the number of road accidents. Large Scale Introduction of Information and Communications Technologies(ICTs) in the road sector provides a platform for reducing societal losses from vehicle crashes as well as providing a path for streamlining the flow of traffic and hence increasing traffic reliability to a great extent. This paper highlights the need for ICT infrastructure concepts as well as various technologies involved to deploy a smart road network and thereby leading to a conception of safety by means of design and modification resulting in a much reliable, secure and an efficient road network.
