Washington Post, Pulizter Center Feature Examines Traffic Accidents

Washington Post: Roads kill: The toll of traffic accidents is rising in poor countries
“…It has a global death toll of 1.24 million per year and is on course to triple to 3.6 million per year by 2030. In the developing world, it will become the fifth leading cause of death, leapfrogging past HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and other familiar killers, according to the most recent Global Burden of Disease study. … This global killer is our most necessary accessory, the essential thing that gets us from here to there: the motorized vehicle. … In ‘Roads Kill,’ The Washington Post joins with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting to bring stories from around the world about this neglected but easily curable public-health crisis…” (Hundley/McCarey, 1/13).
