ROAD ACCIDENTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES

By the early 1970s countries of the third world were becoming increasingly aware that they faced a growing road safety problem. In 1972, following numerous requests made by developing countries for aid and guidance in the road safety field, a small research team was formed within the overseas unit of the Transport and Road Research Laboratory. The aim of this team was to undertake research in third world countries with a view to establishing the nature and extent of their traffic accident problems and, in the longer term to assess the effectiveness of remedial measures. This paper describes some of the major findings of this research team. (Author/TRRL)
