  2. Road SafetyWorldwide Context Road traffic injuries are a huge public health and development issue • More than 3,000 people die and 15,000 are disabled for life every day* • Second leading cause of death globally among young people aged 5 to 29* • 90% of dead related to road traffic accidents occur in developing countries* • Asia–Pacific region: • Contributes up to 44% of global road deaths, although it only has 16% of the world’s motorized vehicle fleet** • Very high proportion of 2-wheeled vehicles, important traffic mix, poor institutions and further rapid motorization • Huge economic losses (between 1 and 3 % of GDP) • * Source: World report on road traffic injury prevention, WHO, Geneva, April 2004 • ** Source: Estimating Global Road Fatalities ,TRL report 445 , Crowthorne, 2000. 2

  3. 1. Road Safety Regional context Laos and Cambodia traffic fatality rates are twice higher than the ASEAN average Source: Fourth ADB/ASEAN Regional Road Safety Workshop, May 2004, Malaysia Notice: When calculated in comparison with the population (number of fatalities/100,000 persons), the fatality rate in Cambodia is in the ASEAN average.

  4. Evolution of road traffic accident and casualties (base 100 = 1995) 1. Road Safety Cambodian Context • Every day, 3 persons die and more than 100 are injured • Cambodia is at the bottom of its motorization curve and exponential growth can be expected for the forthcoming years • Road traffic accidents, casualties and fatalities increase more proportionally than road traffic and population. • Over the last five years, the number of fatalities has doubled. • The road network is rapidly improving, allowing speed increases. • The total economic loss of road traffic accidents is estimated at 116 million US$ annually (ADB). • Sources: • Population: First Revision of Population Projections for Cambodia 1998 -2020, National Institute of Statistics, Ministry of Planning, June 2004; • Traffic and accident figures: Ministry of Public Works and Transport.

Tangible results achieved since the beginning • RTAVIS covers the whole country and its data are widely used by road safety actors and media; • The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports has approved the national road safety curriculum and more than 160,000 children in Phnom Penh are already being trained on road safety; • Helmet wearing rate has more than doubled in the country in 1.5 years (from 7.5 to more than 15%); • The Council of Ministers has approved a new land traffic law which will help to considerably improve the road safety situation; • A National Road Safety Committee has been created. On top of this, regular evaluations of the projects have been performed and have shown very positive results. For example: • More than 70% of villagers interviewed along National Road 5 have seen helmet wearing awareness campaigns on TV; • More than 60% of the children that received road safety education got a score higher then 7/10 on a road safety test at the end of the year.
