Road traffic crashes and consequential fatalities and injuries are a major social, economic, developmental and public health challenge for every country in the world. Globally, well over a million people are killed annually in road traffic crashes resulting in, in addition to human loss and suffering, billions in associated costs which, in some countries, amount to up to 5 per cent of GDP. While many industrialized countries have significantly improved their road-safety records during the past three decades, developing countries and economies in transition bare a disproportional share of this global burden. As such, road traffic crashes are a development issue that strongly affects low and middle-income countries, especially the most economically vulnerable segments of the population.
