Report in the Guardian on the issue of Road Safety in the Developing World.
Michael Schumacher receives an honourable mention.
While such things passed under the radar scanners a few years ago, the topic in general now receives far more reporting with some regular columns.

That George Monbiot is a known idiot and even if his dream was realised and we all were living in mud huts and riding oxen, he'd still have issue with the person who had the mud hut closest to the stream and had a healthier ox.

For the sake of your blood pressure he's best ignored.

About the only conclusion you can draw from that report is that you cannot have a global road safety campaign. The problems are different in different countries and so must be the solutions.
