The fifth Edition of the Global Status Report on Road safety 2023 (GSRRS) has been published by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in December 2023, with the active contribution of NTUA. The 2023 Edition of GSRRS contains a unique wealth of data and information on current status of road safety in the UN countries, highly useful for all types of road safety stakeholders globally. The GSRRS highlights the insufficient global progress as the number of annual road traffic deaths has reached 1.19 million. The GSRRS demonstrates that the price paid for mobility remains too high despite the fact that efforts to improve road safety are having an impact and that significant reductions in road traffic deaths can be made if proven measures are systematically applied.  pdf5
