Identification of key risk factors related to serious road injuries and their health impacts

Publication/report
Published: 2017 (European Commission): Reed, S.; Weijermars, W, et al.
Tags: Road safety in numbers, Policy, International,
Because of their high number and slower reduction compared to fatalities, serious road injuries are increasingly being adopted as an additional indicator for road safety, next to fatalities. Reducing...
