- About EASST
Disability and road risk are closely interlinked. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), every year 20 to 50 million people are injured and 1.24 million are killed on the world’s roads. Road crashes are the primary cause of head injuries, and an estimated 30% of those injured on the roads remain permanently disabled.
The World Health Organisation has published its Global Status Report on Road Safety 2015 in the run-up to the 2nd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety taking place in Brasilia in November 2015.
The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) releases its 9th Road Safety Performance Index Report - by comparing Member State performance, the Road Safety Performance Index (PIN) serves to identify and promote best practice and inspire the kind of political leadership needed to deliver a road transport system that is as safe as possible.
The Global status report on road safety 2013 presents information on road safety from 182 countries, accounting for almost 99% of the world’s population.
This publication provides comparable data on causes, types and results of accidents in Europe, Canada and the United States. This is a trilingual publication in English, French and Russian.
