Road Safety Analysis 2013: Barbados

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is publishing a collection of Road Safety Analyses for the countries in the region. The IDB aims to lead a process of change that will promote road safety actions in Latin America and the Caribbean with a goal of permanently reducing the region's high rate of traffic accidents. Barbados has the lowest road fatality rate in the Caribbean region, 8.8 fatalities per 100,000 population in 2012, compared with a regional average of 17.2 fatalities per 100,000 population. In recent years fatalities have remained stable, with the exception of an increase of 31% over the previous year in 2012. About half of road fatalities are vulnerable road users. The most affected age groups are those between age 20 and 39 and between 50 and 59 years. Barbados does not have an integral road safety plan with quantitative targets and concrete actions, and associated budget.
