The World Bank’s client countries bear the greatest impact of the global road safety crisis. East Asia and the Pacific and South Asia will be particularly hard hit over the next 10 years, accounting for nearly 62 percent of projected fatalities. Rapidly motorizing and urbanizing Sub-Saharan Africa will also see a substantial increase in fatalities. The countries in these regions are facing the dual challenge of increased motorization and rapid infrastructure development and, in a ‘do nothing’ scenario, deaths and injuries are set to spiral unacceptably upwards.
