Abstract

The number of vehicular crash fatalities in Korea was reduced from 13,429 in 1991 to 5,392 in 2012 at a reduction rate of 60%. However the fatality rate per 100,000 population in Korea is still at a very high level compared to fellow OECD member countries. In terms of road safety Korea is among under-developed countries. The former government conducted the "Campaign to Reduce Road Accidents by Half" in order to reduce the number road accidents and the current administration has set the fatality reduction target to 4,000 tied to coincide with presidential elections in 2017. But with these goals set, doubt has been raised that the reduction target of 4,000 fatalities is unobtainable and not the responsibility of the government.

Due to problem of traffic fatalities, Sweden initiated their "Vision Zero" policy in 1997, establishing the concept that a single road fatality is ethically unacceptable. This concept has since spread through the European Union, Australia, and United States among other countries. In Korea the National Assembly (Parliament) has passed the Traffic "Accident Zero Resolution" in February 2013. (The rest omitted)
