While significant progress in improving road safety has been made in some countries in the last decade, the overall global results are far worse and changes are urgently needed to considerably reduce the number of global road fatalities and injuries. Road traffic injuries constitute the first cause of accidental death globally. Road traffic accidents are responsible for more than 1.3 million deaths each year, while estimates of non-fatal injuries range from 20 million to 50 million. The United Nations General Assembly, with particular reference to resolution A/RES/72/271 of 12 April 2018, expressed the concern that, at the current rate of progress by member States, the target 3.61 of Sustainable Development Goal 3 will not be met by 2020.
