WHO Death on the roads

Discussion in 'Research, Studies, and Data' started by wokwon, Oct 22, 2015.

  1. WHO (World Health Org) data on death per unit population on roads, globally, you can filter by motorbikes.

    It's a bit "WORLD ROAD DEATH CRISIS" and I didn't manage to find out the source of the data but provides some interesting comparisons.

  2. Very interesting.

    It definitely fits in with my gut feeling that while I am happy to ride bikes here in Oz, when I am in Greece, I'm better off in a car.

    I might be even safer in Scotland, but the weather is rubbish. ;-)
  3. Some of the metrics are too subjective, like "Good speed limit laws". Australia gets a tick for this despite our speed limits being, generally, much too low. And there isn't a category for "giving a licensing to people who are not capable of driving" or "inadequate testing and re-testing" or something like that.
  4. Geez! We'd be top of the class if they could measure that!
  5. I have ridden in a lot of overseas countries, and we are actually pretty good.

    It can improve but its nowhere near the worse.
