YOUR COUNTRY... In many low and middle income countries (LMICs), the numbers of road traffic fatalities and serious injuries are high and increase rapidly. Not only is this a tragedy for all concerned, also from an economical point of view this leads to an awesome loss of (human) capital. Even when there is strong economic growth and a rapid increase of motorisation, a reduction of fatalities and injuries can be reached through effective road safety policies.

YOUR PEOPLE...
In the last 40 years, the Netherlands has established a leading position in the field of road safety. Their mortality rate in traffic is now one of the lowest in the world. This is the result of an integral approach, in which science, research, road engineering, enforcement and governmental policy have all played their part. In terms of concrete results, this means that over this period of 40 years, in spite of a tripling of traffic, the number of fatalities has declined by over 75%.
