Abstract

In most motorised countries, road crashes are a major cause of death and injury, and the single major cause of death and injury to young people. In motorised and particularly developing countries, the risk to unprotected and vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists and motor cyclists) is unacceptably high.
