TitleRoad traffic crashes and injury prevention in the western pacific region
AuthorsRyan GA, Freund JR
Year1990
TypeConference Paper
AbstractIn this paper we examine the differences in patterns of road traffic crashes between countries of the Western Pacific region and relate them to the mixture of vehicles and other factors relating to vehicle use. Where possible we have used published statistics so the choice of countries is limited to those with adequate data systems . The countries studied fall into a number of groups: industrialised and motorised countries, e.g. Australia, New Zealand and Japan; industrialising countries with large populations spread over many island groups, e.g. Indonesia and the Philippines; the smaller countries with more industry and motor vehicles, e .g. Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong; and finally the small island nations of the Pacific , e.g. Papua New Guinea and Fiji. China falls into a category of its own, with only sparse data being available.
