Gender and road safety

This note has been prepared in response to the following request for TI-UP assistance :

"We know that most at risk in LDCs are vulnerable road users and that pedestrians account for 40-70% of road fatalities. Do we have a data on the gender break-down for fatalities and injuries for Africa. We suspect that a lot of the drivers will be men, but a lot of the passengers and pedestrians will be women and children. This data may be limited for Africa; can comparisons be made from other developing regions where date is better men/women/children breakdowns)?"
