1. ICTs for road safety
The Global status report on road safety 2013 presents information on road safety from 182 countries, which points out that the total number of road traffic deaths worldwide remains unacceptably high at 1.24 million per year (Source:http://www.who.int/violence_injury_prevention/road_safety_status/2013/en/index.html). Subsequently road safety is a major concern for modern world. On the other side the modern world became such modern mostly due to the blessings of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) undoubtedly. ICTs are no longer a luxury for even developing countries. It is indispensible for many aspects. This is why the theme “ICTs and improving road safety” for World Telecommunication and Information Society Day 2013 is very sensible, practical and substantial.
