Title:Development implications of road accident costs on the Central African subregion
Author:Arosanyin, G.T.
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Central Africa
Subject:traffic accidents
Abstract:This paper examines road accident costs and the implications for the Central African subregion. Between 1980 and 1999, the subregion lost about 12 billion American dollars worth of human and material resources through accidents. These developmental resources are equivalent to about 34 percent of the total external debts of the Central African subregion. The road accident risk value (RARV) is estimated at about 30 percent of the GNP per capita for the subregion. For the subregion to improve its road safety culture and reduce costs, it must fund road safety investments adequately with emphasis on human error correction and traffic law enforcement.
