Contents
  • Machine generated contents note: The Decade of Action for Road Safety
  • The purpose of this report
  • Methodology
  • Section 1 The current state of global road safety
  • Many countries have successfully reduced the number of deaths on their roads, while deaths are increasing in others
  • Middle-income countries are hardest hit
  • The African Region has the highest road traffic fatality rate
  • Half of all road traffic deaths are among pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists
  • Almost 60% of road traffic deaths are among 15-44 year olds
  • Non-fatal crash injuries are poorly documented
  • Harmonizing data collection on road traffic deaths
  • Section 2 New road safety laws: progress to data
  • Reducing speed
  • Progress to reduce excessive speed has stalled
  • Reducing urban speeds protects pedestrians and cyclists
  • Speed limits need stronger enforcement
  • Reducing drinking and driving
  • Drink-drive laws should be based on blood alcohol concentration levels
  • Strong Drink Drive Laws Protect Almost 70% of world's population
  • More stringent drink-drive laws for high-risk drivers
  • Drink-drive laws need stronger enforcement
  • Almost half of all countries lack of data on alcohol-related road traffic deaths
  • Increasing motorcycle helmet use
  • Head injuries among motorcyclists are a growing concern
  • More effort is needed to promote helmet standards and quality
  • Data on helmet use is weak
  • Increasing seat-belt use
  • Progress has been made in tightening up seat-belt laws
  • Enforcing seat-belt laws needs more emphasis
  • Only half of countries collect seat-belt wearing data
  • Increasing the use of child restraints
  • More countries need to adopt child restraint use
  • Encouraging child restraint use
  • Lead agencies are vital to developing a national road safety strategy
  • Involving multiple sectors in national road safety efforts is critical
  • National road safety strategies should include targets to minimize injuries, deaths and key risk factors
  • Section 3 Transport policies neglect pedestrians and cyclist
  • Governments need to make walking and cycling safe
  • Safer roads reduce crash likelihood and severity
  • Action is needed to make vehicles safer for non-car road users
  • Public transport can make mobility safer and reduce congestion
  • Conclusions and recommendations
  • References
  • Explanatory notes
  • Methodology, data collection and validation
  • Country profile explanations
  • Estimating global road traffic deaths.
