Filmed in a township in South Africa and in New York City, this is a snapshot of what's happening on the world's roads. Every year 1.25 million die and up to 50 million are injured. We need to get serious about this. The good news is that we know how to reduce these horrific figures - many countries have succeeded in drastically improving safety on the roads. But it's a race - as many countries around the world become wealthier, more and more cars are on the road.
A major priority for the World Health Organization, this was filmed for United Nations television.
