Looking back on 10 years of global road safety

OUPblog: According to the World Health Organization there were 1.35 million road traffic deaths globally in 2016 and between 20 and 50 million more people suffered non-fatal injuries and/or disabilities. Most of these collisions occurred in low- and middle-income countries and involved pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. In addition, road traffic collisions are the leading killer of those between 15 and 29 years of age.
Despite some progress being made globally, and in some regions and countries, road traffic fatality rates remain unacceptably high.
