Abstract

Road safety is a challenge for sustainable development. Among the vulnerable road users, the motorized 2 and 3-wheelers were the most vulnerable which accounted for 39.21 percent of all road deaths.

In this study, the status of motorcycle helmet use law and the rate of helmet use in the ESCAP region have been reviewed. The recommendations of the study have been grouped into four categories: a) legislation and enforcement, b) education and awareness campaign, c) improved data collection and d) improved detection system.
