Road Safety message for Easter holiday season 2018

Global perspective on road safety

In terms of Global status report on road safety 2015, total number of road traffic deaths has plateaued at 1.25 million per year, with the highest road traffic fatality rates in low-income countries. While there has been progress towards improving road safety legislation and in making vehicles safer, the report shows that the pace of change is too slow. Urgent action is needed to achieve the ambitious target for road safety reflected in the newly adopted 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: halving the global number of deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 2020. Most of the developing countries like South Africa have aligned their laws to international standard of best practice in dealing with risk factors on our roads.
