Filling know-do gaps in road safety policy in developing countries: a case study of Thailand

In developing countries, a trend in increasing road traffic injuries (RTIs) has been observed over several decades; while in many developed countries there has been an observed decrease, due to road safety policy and specific intervention application. The authors discuss a Thai case study aimed at demonstrating how, within a complex and dynamic socio-political context, policies and actions are translated from existing knowledge. The authors offer potential system reform success factor identification and road safety system analysis. They conclude that effective and relevant road safety policies and actions require, in the context of the specific country they are to be developed in, additional economic, social, and political knowledge.
