RS10, a five year, global road safety project was launched in China late last year. The project aims to reduce road-crash related death and injury in ten low-and-middle income areas by targeting the key risk factors on the road to reduce death and serious injuries and applying the proven good practices and interventions. The (WHO), Global Road Safety Partnership and John Hopkins University are major international partners for China for the project.
In China, drunk driving and speeding have been identified as main risk factors for road safety. RS10 is expected to play a major role in tackling these issues to make roads safer in China.
