Road Safety Overviews

In June 2023, Ken Smith, FACRS, gave the keynote speech at the Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management’s ‘Travel Bug’ conference at the Gold Coast, Queensland. It is reproduced here with Mr. Smith’s permission: Road Safety — Past, Present, and Future.

Within the European Union, an overview of road safety is available on the Europa website.

One of the best international perspectives, especially about third-world countries, comes from the World Bank Road Safety website.
