The good practice manual, titled Strengthening road safety legislation: a practice and resource manual for countries is now published by World Health Organisation. Comprehensive road safety legislation – which incorporates evidence-based measures and strict and appropriate penalties, backed by consistent, sustained enforcement and public education – has been proven to reduce road traffic injuries and fatalities. This manual describes methods and provides resources that practitioners and decision-makers can use for enacting new laws or amending existing ones as part of a comprehensive road safety strategy, it recommends a stepwise approach to assessing and improving legislation relating to five specific risk factors for road-traffic injuries, as well as post-crash care.
