Halving the Number of Road Deaths in Korea
Korea aims to radically improve its roads safety record and move from one of the highest shares of road deaths per heads of population of OECD countries to a place among OECD’s top road safety performers. A number of successful measures have already been adopted, yet these will not be sufficient to deliver fewer road deaths on the desired scale. The Korean government invited the International Transport Forum (ITF) together with Korean experts to assess the road safety strategies in place, and to identify potential improvements. The analysis presented in this report draws on good practices in other OECD countries that are relevant for Korea with regard to both road safety policies as well as the institutional arrangement to support them.
This report is part of the International Transport Forum’s Case-Specific Policy Analysis (CSPA) series. These are topical studies on specific transport policy issues of concern to a country carried out by ITF on request.
