Thanks for your observations. In agreement with them. Indeed, as noted in the blog, vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and passengers using unsafe public transport, suffer greatest as they account for more than 50% of road deaths. Country experience, for example in Vietnam, shows the significant impact in reducing premature deaths by the introduction and enforcement of helmet wearing initiatives and regulations. Indeed, as also noted in the blog, the true magnitude of the problem is obscured by the underreporting of deaths and injuries. This is a major systemic issues in most of the developing countries.
