The Business case for Safer Roads

The iRAP Business Case for Safer Roads provides a high-level global estimate of the lives and serious injuries that can be saved, and the social and economic benefits of maximising the percentage of travel on 3 star or better roads by 2030.  This simple analysis helps to highlight the benefits of investing in road safety and creating safer roads and safer speeds that will save lives. With widespread application of low-cost maintenance safety treatments, well-targeted investment in infrastructure upgrades and safer speeds across the global road network an estimated 100 million lives and serious injuries can be saved worldwide if Targets 3 and 4 are met.
