Road safety is crucial

UITP and ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability) teamed up to produce a report about road safety, and how public transport can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Road traffic injuries are the 10th leading cause of death globally, responsible for around 1.3 million deaths each year with 90% of these casualties happening in developing countries. Around 50 million people are injured on the world’s roads every year. Cities all over the world are recognising this issue and taking actions to make their roads safe, acknowledging that well-developed public transport can contribute to the safety goal.

“A sustainable transport system helps to save lives.”
Mohamed Mezghani
Secretary General, UITP
