19 February 2021

The second UN Decade of Action for Road Safety launched this year with an aim to reduce road deaths by 50% globally by 2030. With the prospect of automated vehicles, a growing emphasis on reducing emissions and a be better understanding of highway design, will the next 10 years see a step change in reducing road deaths?
