Annual Road Crash Report

The  Crash  and  Claims  Report  presents  a  very  important  information  and  decision  making  tool  to  various stakeholders ranging from government departments, private insurance companies and civic organizations. The MVA Fund is therefore pleased to release the 2014 issue of the Report. Efforts are always made to continuously improve  the  quality  of  the  Report.  For  this  particular  issue, a  section  on  Impact  Assessment  of  Road  Safety Initiatives from 2009 to 2014 has been included. This is a deliberate attempt to give stakeholders feedback on the performance of national road safety initiatives against the targets of the Decade of Action for Road Safety.

In terms of traffic safety performance for the year 2014, a total of 377 road crash fatalities and 1234 serious injuries occurred in Botswana. These figures represent 9.0 percent decrease in annual recorded fatalities from the 411 fatalities recorded in 2013 and 6.0% decrease in serious injuries during the same period. The decreases in both fatalities and serious injuries were in line with decrease in total  recorded  crashes  by  2.5%  from  17062  in  2013  to  16641  in  2014.  This  represents  a  marginal  improvement  in  traffic
