Volvo Cars calls on UN delegates to address deep-rooted road safety inequality
Volvo Cars today calls on governments and regulators around the world to address a large inequality in road safety between developed and developing economies. Despite progress made in recent decades, official data shows a significant gap in the number of traffic fatalities between both categories of countries.
Each year, an estimated 1.35 million people lose their lives in traffic accidents.
