Road to zero isn’t just a national problem but something that we, as practitioners, should be aspiring to achieve on a global scale. Approximately 93% of the world’s fatalities on the roads occur in low and middle income countries, even though these countries have approximately 60% of the world’s vehicles (WHO).  At REAAA 2022, Lewis Martin highlights how the Safe System Approach can be implemented in countries with different incomes, vehicle compositions, road user cultures and crash data limitations. Lewis explores why we must move away from historical road safety approaches and execute change with the greatest social benefit in mind and presents a global safety narrative that highlights what changes are needed most. Listen to his presentation at REAAA Auckland (12 October), Taupo (13 October), Wellington (14 October) or Christchurch (17 October).
