A Comprehensive Approach for Road Safety – The Example of Germany - Now also in Ukrainian language
About 3,400 people die every day in road traffic accidents around the world. Despite comparatively low levels of individual motorisation, emerging economies and developing countries are particularly affected, with more than 90 per cent of traffic-related deaths occurring in these countries. If current trends continue, road accidents will overtake HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis to become the world’s third most significant health hazard by 2030.
By launching the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, the United Nations has called on the member states to step up their efforts to improve road safety. This infographic illustrates the comprehensive approach that Germany has taken as a response to sharply rising fatality rates since the 1950s. Along with many other European countries, Germany has succeeded in reducing fatalities significantly – thanks to a bundle of measures that can be replicated elsewhere.
