The Day Our World Crumbled: The Human Impact of Inaction on Road Safety
This report, which is based on a survey of 5,606 people from 132 countries, focuses on the devastating impact that road crashes have on the lives of road victims, their families, and the wider community. It shows that road crashes affect a lot of people, multiple times through their lives and the consequences are far-reaching. Notably, you do not have to be in the vehicle to be affected by a crash; the emotional, financial, and other impacts can also have a damaging effect on the friends and family of crash victims. Moreover, many people feel unsafe as road users, regardless of whether they have experienced a crash or not.
In the report, statistical analysis of the survey data is combined with the powerful testimonies of crash victims and their families. The data paints a picture of the complex ways that road crashes affect lives: health, finance, relationships, justice and more. Read more HERE.
