Road Safety Forum (WP.1) Roundtable

Road Safety Forum (WP.1) Roundtable: "Are we victims of development success"?
Palais des Nations, Geneva - 23 September 2009



The UNECE Road Safety Forum –  Working Party on Road Traffic Safety (WP.1) – organized a roundtable to give experts an opportunity to debate what has become a paradox of our times: despite improved awareness, safer vehicles and road infrastructures, better training of drivers, and more expedient trauma care, the casualties and the fatality rates due to road traffic crashes continue to rise.

Discussions focused on four major aspects of improved road traffic safety, each of them being introduced by a keynote speaker, followed by a discussion where participants presented national cases and shared relevant experience.
