Every year more than 300 people are killed in road traffic crashes in Armenia, although the actual number of fatalities is estimated to be closer to 550* people. To date the country has experienced very low motorisation, yet the incidence of road traffic crashes and resulting injuries are growing, with drivers and passengers of cars representing 64%* of all fatalities.
Armenia has implemented a series of road safety best practices, such as national speed limits, and seat-belt, motorcycle helmet and child restraint laws. However, all measures are only moderately enforced.
Scaling up capacity of Governments, civil society organizations and the Armenia Red Cross National Society in road safety fundamentals and advocacy for road safety through sub-regional and national workshops.

Establishment of online library for public awareness campaigns.
Development of the technical guide, in-country trainings on first response in road crashes.
