The first act of the Malaysian Cabinet Committee on Road Safety was to set a target in 1991 for accident reduction by remedial action. This target is a fatality rate reduction from 7. 12 deaths per 10,000 registered vehicles (based on the 1989 figures) down to 3.14 deaths per 10,000 vehicles to be achieved by the year 2000. This paper summarises the recommended plan made in 1991 and focuses on its engineering aspects by attempting to report what has been achieved to date.
