In November 2008, UNECE published the first edition of the Transport Review, dedicated on road safety. Transport, especially road traﬃc safety, is the area in which global cooperation is inevitable as hundreds of millions of people who travel on the roads every day take a risk. The risk include excessive speeding, driving under the inﬂuence of alcohol or other drugs, failure to use seat-belts and helmets, poorly designed or insuﬃ ciently maintained road infrastructure, and the use of vehicles that are old, poorly maintained or lacking safety feature. People’s safety must be preserved and improved. This can be achieved through the concerted eﬀ orts of several players, public and non-governmental alike. Even though certain achievements are obvious, further improvements should be made.
