The 10th of April, 2020 marked the end of United Nations’ Decade of Action for Road Safety. The target for this Decade was to reduce global road fatalities by 50% of the projected deaths of around 1.9 million –to below 900,000 deaths. However, by the year 2016 we saw the global road fatality toll rise to 1.35 million – and we still have around 1.35 million deaths per year.
