Make Roads Safe - Shanghai meeting

1 October 2006

A high level road safety seminar to promote the “Make Roads Safe” campaign was held in Shanghai on Friday 29 September.  The meeting examined the major road safety challenges facing the Asian Pacific region where road deaths per vehicle are currently twice the world average. In 2005 an estimated 440,000 people were killed on the region’s roads. This death toll is forecast to rise to 660,000 by 2010 amounting to two thirds of the world total. The Shanghai meeting examined the potential of safer roads, vehicles and drivers to reverse this deteriorating road safety situation.
