Safety is perhaps the most important  factor in planning, design and operations for all modes in developing countries.   Traffic accidents, in particular, constitute the leading cause of death and injury for young people in developing countries, and many of them involve pedestrians and bicyclists.  This session explores the many dimensions of this issue.
