Cambodia aims to ensure road safety

Cambodia is set to enter a decade of ensuring traffic safety today by joining an international effort lead by the United Nations to cut road fatalities amongst participating counties by 50 percent in ten years. But the severity of Cambodia’s annual road toll has lead officials to aim for a more modest target in the Kingdom of a 30 percent overall reduction, said Preap Chanvibol, director for the Department of Transportation at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport. He said 2011 fatalities in Cambodia were on track to rise above last year’s tally of 1,816, but hoped by committing to the UN’s safety guidelines Cambodia would reach its target of preventing 4,700 fatalities by 2020.
