These words before the UN are just that, words. The RD governments over many years have promised to reduce deaths. The RD has to have enforcement actions, better roads, better signage, and more good public transportation; to reduce the deaths and injuries.

Too many vehicles, motorcyclists, trucks, etc. Pedestrian and domestic animals pay the consequences. Drivers violate, speed up, and break traffic lines to move ahead of traffic congestions. And now they flash firearms whenever there is a traffic dispute. More deaths are coming.
