Korea’s 96% reduction in child traffic fatalities
Korea Transport Institute.
2018 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In Korea, the number of child deaths from road traffic accidents fell 96% from 1,766 deaths in 1988 to 71 deaths in 2016. Few other countries have made such an improvement in a relatively short period of time.

Korea has implemented various policies designed to reduce child traffic accidents, and these policies can be classified into the aspects of 3E: Engineering, Education and Enforcement.

In terms of engineering, the school zone program was introduced in 1995. It led to the designation of about 15,799 school zones around kindergartens and elementary schools as well as the installation of road safety facilities.

As for education, the Ministry of Education required all kindergartens and elementary schools to conduct road safety education. All children now have been given compulsory road safety education of minimum 10 hours every year.

In terms of enforcement, the new penalty system was introduced in 2011 under which traffic violators in school zones are punished with double fines and double penalty points.

This paper explains in detail about the child traffic safety policies such as the child safety laws and regulations, the child safety education, and the school zone improvement programs, and explains about the trend of child traffic fatalities in Korea.
