Abstract 

Road traffic injuries are the cause of 1.2 million deaths and 50 million injuries each year [1]. In May, 2015 the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration dedicated the Third UN Global Road Safety Week to the plight of children on the world’s roads (http://www.who.int/roadsafety/week/2015/en/). Road traffic injuries are one of the leading causes of death in children in high income countries, however the absolute rates of child casualties are highest in low and middle income countries, accounting for 93% of global child road deaths [2].
