‘A Little Money’ Could Bring Greater Road Safety In Developing World
The Economist: Reinventing the wheel
“Road crashes now kill 1.3 million people a year, more than malaria or tuberculosis. … Yet few places tackle road deaths with the same determination as infectious diseases … In most countries more than half of all deaths happen on under a tenth of roads. Roads bring hope to poor people, and misery as well. A little money spent on safety can tip the balance sharply, to everyone’s benefit” (1/25).
