Abstract

Road safety is a public health problem around the world. With over 1 million people killed on roads every year, the need to address the issue cannot be neglected. In developing countries, travel risks and traffic exposures grow at a much faster rate, as the growth of registered vehicles always outnumbers population growth and new roads are constructed. By incorporating travel risks and traffic exposure factors into statistical models, the number of road deaths can be estimated, which can help in setting more realistic road safety targets. This paper provides a framework for developing countries such as Malaysia to set and evaluate their road safety targets.
