Legacy Road Safety Initiative

Road Safety Marathon 2024


According to the Police Annual Crime Report 2023, we registered 24,728 crash victims, indicating a 15% increase from 2022, which had 21,473 victims. The fatalities increased to 4,806 from 4,534 in 2022; those seriously injured increased to 16,736 from 15,227 in 2022; and minor injuries also saw an increase to 3,186 from 1,712 in 2022. On average, 12 people die daily on our roads. However, some of these victims would survive if there was instant access to blood whenever the need came. But still, there’s a shortage of blood in the country; out of the required 450,000 units of blood, only 300,000 units are collected annually.
