Global road toll falls

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige -

The death toll on the world’s road is show­ing a sig­nif­i­cant down­ward trend, at least in the 52 coun­tries which are mem­bers of the In­ter­na­tional Trans­port Fo­rum. The Paris-based ITF says the toll fell be­low 150,000 in 2008 for the first time — an 8.9 per cent de­crease from 2007, the biggest re­duc­tion since 1990 — with pre­lim­i­nary data for 2010 point­ing to an­other drop of al­most 10 per cent.
