Throughout the world, more and more people die as a result of traffic accidents. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1.35 million deaths are registered every year as a result of these deaths and this responds to the lack of security measures implemented in poor countries, says the international organization.
The WHO, in its global security report, also claims that traffic accidents are currently the main cause of death between children and young people from 5 to 29 years.
In recent years, the number of deaths registered on roads in the world increased year by year. In 2009, WHO represented more than 1.2 million deaths due to this cause, while in 2018 this figure increased to 1.35 million.
By declaration, the Chief Executive of the WHO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, explained that "These deaths represent an unacceptable price for mobility."
He also said "there is no excuse for passiveness, and this report is a call for governments and their partners to take much more important measures".
However, WHO believes that "death prices, in terms of the size of the world population, have been stabilized in recent years." This suggests that the security securities applied in certain countries of high and medium income have mitigated the situation.
WHO also stresses that it is important for cities to have modern and more secure infrastructure, such as access and reservation routes for motorcyclists and cyclists, and also a proper reinforcement of security conditions for vehicles such as electronic stability control and restraint.
Although the situation has improved in rich countries, the number of deaths are freeways not reduced in a single lowland country, mainly due to the lack of measures to improve security, warns the report.
, Africa is the country with the highest points of view, while European countries have the lowest rates.
