Global Status Report
The Global status report on road safety is the first broad assessment of the status of road safety in 178 countries. The results provide a benchmark that countries can use to assess their road safety position relative to other countries. The report presents a number of key findings: countries have higher road traffic fatality rates (21.5 and 19.5 per 100 000 population, respectively) than high-income countries (10.3 per 100 000). Over 90% of the world’s fatalities on the roads occur in low-income and middle-income countries, which have only 48% of the world’s registered vehicles. The Global Status Report is available here.
