One million three hundred people die every day on the road and 50 million are injured worldwide as a result of road traffic accidents, half of that number are not traveling in cars. Every 24 seconds someone is killed in a road traffic accident. About 30 million people also sustain non-fatal injuries from road traffic collision leading to disability worldwide; a quarter of those injured are pedestrians and cyclists.

The Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority recorded 2,769 fatalities, and 1,604 persons were severely injured in 2020 from Road traffic crashes. Road traffic accident is now a leading cause of death for children and young adults between the ages of 5-29. The great anguish and economic burden on families and communities road traffic accidents bring, remains an unacceptable price to pay for mobility.
