Data-Driven Infrastructure Projects Aim To Reduce Global Traffic Deaths

People and cars have a deadly relationship. Nearly 1.3 million people die as a result of traffic accidents each year, according to the World Health Organization. Half of those deaths are "vulnerable road users": pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. And fatalities are rising. In the United States, for instance, roadway deaths jumped more than 10 percent in the first half of last year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Similarly, pedestrian deaths rose 10 percent year-over-year in 2015, according to the agency.
