Roads are the single largest killer of young people in the world, killing more 5-14 year olds than malaria, diarrhea and HIV/AIDS combined. Each year, an estimated 1.3 million people are killed in traffic crashes around the world and another 20-50 million are injured. That’s 3,500 people killed a day from road traffic crashes. By 2030, road traffic injuries are expected to be the fifth largest cause of death globally.
The impact is tremendous…not just for the individual but for families, their communities and ultimately for society as a whole.
