Road safety is a key development challenge. Every year 1.35 million people die on the roads with more than 93% of these road crash fatalities occurring in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs).

They not only devastate families emotionally and financially, but also take a toll on the path to development for many LMICs. However feasible solution to reduce fatalities and serious injuries do exist and with access to relevant tools and information, these solutions can be promoted and implemented.
