As the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020) draws to a close, it is clear that the Sustainable Development Goal of reducing global road traffic deaths by half by 2020 will not be met. In most low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), traffic injuries are rising or stable at a high level. In contrast, traffic deaths in high-income countries (HICs) have been steadily declining for five decades. The talk will present econometric analysis of historic data to argue that the success of HICs resulted from establishing regulatory agencies that conducted large-scale safety interventions. We will explore the implications for LMI Cs, providing case studies of the development of similar institutions and their activities.
