Description of this Electronic Book

This book examines the road death reduction capacity in Africa, with a view to assisting Master's and doctoral students to contribute to road traffic injury prevention. Divided into five parts, this innovative portrayal of the institutional capacity to reduce road deaths evaluates the reporting accuracy of crash data in Africa, the causes of road deaths, institutional weaknesses and threats, and detailed case-studies. It also offers suggestions for the development of coordinated road traffic policy responses. Complete with practice activities and recommendations for further reading, this book is ideal as a course textbook at tertiary institutions, and will encourage policy makers and university students to be reflective practitioners.
