Road Safety Framework


Road traffic injuries are the largest category of unintentional injuries. Urbanization and the growth of the middle class in many developing countries have added many new vehicles to the roads in these countries. The World Health Organization, many national governments, and other non-governmental organizations have conducted significant research into regulations, standards, and other interventions that can reduce the number and frequency of road traffic injuries.

UL has developed the Road Safety Framework using data gathered by the WHO as part of the Decade of Action for Road Safety. The Road Safety Framework computes a score by awarding point base on the presence of national laws related to road safety, specific values of certain road safety regulations (e.g. speed limits), and the enforcement of road safety laws.
