Road Safety

The first edition (November 2008) of the Transport Review was dedicated to road safety. Thanks to prominent transport policy experts and well-known dignitaries in road traffic safety circles, the Road Safety edition of the Review contains a wide variety of articles on the many aspects of this important issue.
Excerpt from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message to Transport Review readers:
“In recent years, preventing injury and death on the world’s roads has gained greater prominence on the international development agenda. (…) Despite increased awareness and more dynamic efforts to improve road safety, the epidemic of road traffic fatalities and injuries will continue to be an important public health and development issue. (…) I urge UN member States and global road safety partners to foster cooperation under UN auspices. And I commend this issue of UNECE’s Transport Review to a wide global audience.”
