Abstract

This handbook is planned and designed as a toolkit for researchers, policymakers, non-profit organization staff members and individuals who want to understand how a traffic crash affects individual’s life in the longrun. Nowadays, many countries, especially middle and low-income countries, experience a high number of traffic collisions and fatalities because in many cases they do not have the necessary traffic safety practices and regulations in place. The more fundamental problem is that despite low-income countries experience a high rate of traffic collisions, the devastating and tragic consequences of those collisions are not well understood or shared; nor do most law enforcement authorities or policymakers provide sufficient accurate statistics. It is partly because of the lack of proper data leads to a lack of understanding what happens after the collision. (rest omitted)
