Some 270,000 pedestrians killed each year in the world

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported Friday that 270,000 pedestrians are killed each year on the roads of the planet, appellant further road safety.

The mowing pedestrians represent 22 percent of the total 1.24 million people killed annually in road accidents, according to WHO, which is attached to the United Nations.

The agency, whose head office is in Geneva, has called for new laws to reduce the speed of even the alcohol and the use of mobile phones while driving, as well as for the improvement of lighting on roads and promote the construction of routes for pedestrians.

The director of the department of prevention of violence and trauma WHO Etienne Krug, stressed that 5000 pedestrians are killed every week "because their needs have been neglected for decades, often in favor of motorized transportation."
