The Safe System approach in action

International Transport Forum ITF

Road crashes kill over 1.3 million people worldwide each year and seriously injure millions more. The Safe System approach to road safety can drastically reduce road deaths – but how can it be put into action? Building on the deliberations of a joint ITF–World Bank Working Group, this report proposes a framework for designing, implementing and assessing projects with a Safe System focus. In addition, it draws on lessons from real-world case studies to offer guidance on implementing Safe System interventions.
