ROAD SAFETY IN AFRICA - CHALLENGES AND POSSIBILITIES

Although the number of people killed and injured in road accidents in most African countries have not yet reached the same numbers as European and North American countries of similar populations, the number of people killed and injured relative to the number of motor vehicles is extremely high in most African countries. The World Bank has asked the Institute of Transport Economics, Norway to evaluate the road safety work in five selected African countries: Benin, the Cote d'Ivoire, Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. The purpose of this evaluation is to: find out what are the problems of road safety work in Africa; see how these problems can be solved; and find out what other African countries can learn from these five countries that have some experience with road safety work.
