Meeting the road safety challenge: Halving the deaths and injuries by 2030

Ministers' Roundtable

All countries are facing the persistent challenge of road crashes and their consequences. Around 1.35 million people are killed every year, and dozens of millions are severely injured in on-road crashes. The impact of the COVID pandemic on road safety has been mixed across countries and regions. The reduction in fatalities has been weaker than the reduction in traffic, and in some countries the number of fatalities has increased substantially as the recovery has taken place. There is, therefore, a need for a renewed focus on safety policies.
