MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT FUND ROAD CRASH AND CLAIMS ANNUAL REPORT DECEMBER MVA Fund is a Botswana partner in the world Decade of Action for Road Safety -. PLAY YOUR PART TOGETHER WE CAN SAVE LIVES Proud holder of the Deloitte Best Organisation to Work For award

2 Joining the Decade of Action Each year about.3 million people die on the road and to million more are injured. Unless action is taken, road crashes are predicted to become the fifth leading cause of death in the world by the year, with.4 million fatalities a year. The United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety - is a vital global attempt to slow this tragic trend. Botswana commits to the Decade of Action with the firm resolve to redouble its own road safety efforts. Motor Vehicle Accident Fund as the national body charged with promoting road safety, while compensating, supporting and rehabilitating those affected by crashes will play its full part in this great cause.

7 ROAD SAFETY COMPENSATION REHABILITATION SUPPORT Foreword Road crashes represent a wasteful expenditure of any nation s valuable resources. The cumulative cost to our country in terms of the loss of productive human resources, the loss and damage to material resources including vehicles, the personal and national medical, administrative, legal and other costs is huge. And it is rising. Statistics show that 397 people were killed and a further 494 were seriously injured on the road in Botswana in. These figures present a sorry picture, largely affecting the productive sector of the population. A high 6% of the road traffic fatalities during the year were people in the -44 age group the most productive of the community, largely comprising educated and trained individuals holding key positions in the workplace. These figures represent human suffering, bereavement, grief and loss which in the majority of cases are avoidable. It is of paramount importance that all road users understand their obligations, by obeying the rules of the road and giving consideration to others. We all share the road, and we have a responsibility to each other to make the road safe. Even when one has the right of way it is essential to yield in the interests of safety. After all, everybody involved in a road crash suffers, not just the wrongdoer. This report not only provides a deep insight into the magnitude of the problem of road traffic crashes in the country, but it is intended also to inspire a change of attitude and behaviour. The fact is that crashes can be prevented but to achieve this demands attention to common sense issues like speeding, use of seatbelts, drinking and driving, disregard of traffic laws, use of cell phones, carelessness, impatience, lack of courtesy, night driving and fatigue on long journeys. It is my conviction and high hope that with all the commendable efforts that continue to be made we will be able to report positively on the road traffic safety situation in subsequent reports. The goal of preventing death and injury on the road must be reached at all costs, and soon. We will achieve this because we owe it to the nation since we are accountable for it. As individuals we owe it to ourselves and our families to stay safe. As road safety stakeholders, our task is to create the context and awareness to allow Botswana to become one of the safest countries in the region. When we all take responsibility, these aspirations will be realised and we will have a real sense of pride in how we use our roads. Share the road go with Botho!

10 MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT FUND Road Crash and Claims Annual Report SECTION Background. DATA COLLECTION METHOD This report was researched and compiled by Motor Vehicle Accident Fund. different data sources were used, the main one being the Botswana Police Traffic Crash Statistics Division Database. The other data sources used were the MVA Fund claims database, the Population Projections Report (Central Statistics Report), the Department of Road Transport and Safety Vehicles Database and the World Health Organisation 9 Global Status Report on Road Safety.. ROAD SAFETY COUNTRY PROFILE Road crashes continue to be among the leading causes of death and injury worldwide. They are currently ranked 9th according to the World Health Organisation Report (9). The report warns that if appropriate action is not taken now, road crashes will rise to the third leading cause of death and injury globally by. It is against this background that the World Health Organisation declared road crashes as a major public health problem. Many countries do not regard road crashes as a major problem because they do not have clear strategies to reduce traffic crashes. In March the United Nations General Assembly declared - the Decade of Action for Road Safety. The intention is to stabilise road crashes by increasing activities conducted at national, regional and global levels. The Decade of Action goal is to reduce road crashes by half a major challenge that can only be achieved through guided, coordinated and concerted action. In summary, the overall goal of the Decade of Action for Road Safety is to halt or reverse the rise in road fatalities around the world by stepping up road safety activities at the national level. This will be attained through: Setting ambitious targets for reducing deaths by ; strengthening the global architecture for road safety; increasing the level of global funding for road safety and putting in place a global funding mechanism; increasing human capacity for road safety within countries; providing technical support to countries using successful experiences from others; improving the quality of data collection at the national, regional and global levels and Monitoring progress on a number of predefined indicators at the national, regional and global levels including both the public and private sectors. To achieve these objectives, countries are encouraged to implement the Decade framework comprising five pillars road safety management, infrastructure, safe vehicles, road user behaviour and post-crash care. Road deaths and injuries impose a huge economic burden on developing economies, amounting to -3% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in most countries (WHO 9). Botswana loses around 48 people to road crashes annually, with another being seriously injured. Most of these deaths and injuries can be avoided if appropriate interventions are put in place. Reports from Botswana Police Traffic Division show that most of these crashes are caused by human error, which shows clearly that they can be avoided. Statistics also show that most deaths and injuries occur at the weekend, especially at month-end and over public holidays..3 CURRENT ROAD SAFETY TRENDS The high level of road trauma in Botswana imposes huge economic costs on the country. In addition, deaths and disability cause great emotional and financial stress to the thousands of families affected. Crashes are largely preventable. Each life saved and each serious injury avoided reduces pain and suffering and achieves important economic savings.

In 98 the number of people killed in road crashes per population was 9.9. The figure went up in the following years, peaking at 3.4 in and going down to. in. Fatalities per vehicles stood at 6.8 in 98 and went up between 98 and 99, with the highest at 4. in 989. The graph below shows that between and the two traffic safety indicators moved downwards an indication of good performance compared to the previous years. Fatalities per vehicles declined at a faster rate than fatalities per population. Two factors could be attributed to the faster decline in fatalities per vehicles. The first factor could be that there was a sharp increase in the vehicle population while fatality rates remained constant, and the second could be that the data did not allow for deregistration of scrap or inactive vehicles from the system, thereby inflating the number of vehicles on the road and as a result distorting this performance indicator.

12 MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT FUND Road Crash and Claims Annual Report SECTION Background (continued) The 7 traffic safety performance of the countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) ranked Botswana second in the region for the number of people killed in road crashes per population. South Africa was at the top with 3.7 people killed. The lowest countries for road fatalities per population were Malawi, Madagascar and Democratic Republic of Congo. Figure SADC traffic safety performance 7 (Deaths/ population) DRC Madagascar. Malawi Tanzania Mozambique 7.8 Zimbabwe.6 Zambia.7. Angola Mauritius 6. Seychelles 7.7 Namibia..6 Lesotho Swaziland Botswana RSA Fatalities per population for Botswana were between 4.9 and. in the years 6-. There were fluctuations over the years, indicating that the country s performance was volatile. The movement of this traffic safety indicator did not show constant reduction or increases, these movements strongly suggests that the past road safety initiatives did not have constant impact in road safety performance of the country.

13 PLAY YOUR PART TOGETHER WE CAN SAVE LIVES.4 MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT FUND BUSINESS The 7 MVA Fund Act changed the operation and focus of the Fund. The Act gives more emphasis to road safety education and injury prevention and medical treatment and rehabilitation. These changes were aimed at reducing costs for the Fund and enhancing the quality of life of those affected by road crashes. During MVA Fund implemented some initiatives in the Injury Prevention Department and Case Management section with the aim of reducing road traffic crashes and enhancing the quality of life for those affected by road crashes. The Injury Prevention Department intensified road safety education during the year. The implementation of major activities included media advertising, roadside education campaigns, road safety sponsorships and occupational road risk workshops for organisations with large fleets of vehicles. The Fund spent P on road safety activities during the year, compared to P in the previous year. In the Fund financed two community groups through its Community Road Safety Grant Scheme, with the aim of encouraging local road safety initiatives and educating communities on the importance of road safety. The grant scheme cultivates community participation in the prevention of road crashes within their localities. The grant scheme was born out of the fact that different parts of the country experience different road crash situations, which can best be dealt with at the local level because the communities themselves are best placed to identify specific problems in their areas. The MVA Fund Injury Prevention Department, through the research function, produced the 9 Road Crash and Claims Annual Report, the first publication of its kind in the country. Its appearance marked a critical milestone in the national effort to save lives on the road. The report presented highly detailed road crash statistics at all levels for local and regional planning, providing stakeholders with critical information for planning, implementing and monitoring. The document demonstrated that effective road safety management must be derived from thorough road safety research. The success of the first MVA Fund Road Crash and Claims Annual Report promoted the publication of this second Report, for the year.. SOCIO-ECONOMIC ROLE OF MVA FUND In the Fund intensified the process of rehabilitating those affected by road crashes. At year end the total undertaking client base was 4 7. A total of 86 seriously injured claimants, the majority of them with multiple injuries, were rehabilitated. The Case Management Department sent 8 claimants to different specialists for medical assessments and treatment. The use of money set aside for medical purposes increased from 4.% in 9 to 36.% in. This was attributed to the increase in the level of awareness of the Fund s products and services..6 GEOGRAPHIC FOOTPRINT OF THE FUND MVA Fund continues to take its services out to the people. The Fund s offices are strategically located in regions with high traffic volumes and other traffic safety indicators such as the number of crashes and the population in the region. In the Fund opened its fifth branch office, at Selebi- Phikwe. The office is assisting those affected by crashes in Selebi Phikwe and the surrounding areas.

14 MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT FUND Road Crash and Claims Annual Report SECTION Road crashes by police district. CRASHES BY POLICE DISTRICT The table below shows recorded crashes for the past five years by police districts, and total and average recorded crashes for the same period. The average number of recorded crashes for the past five years was 9 83 and only two years (6 and ) during the period fell below the five-year average. The highest number of crashes, totalling 4, was recorded in 8. Police districts with all-time high crashes recorded were Gaborone West, Gaborone, Serowe and Francistown. Police districts recording the lowest number of crashes were Kasane, Ghanzi, Tsabong and Lobatse.

15 ROAD SAFETY COMPENSATION REHABILITATION SUPPORT. RANK OF CRASHES FOR POLICE DISTRICTS 6- The distribution of total crashes recorded annually for the past five years shows that Gaborone West, Gaborone and Serowe Police Districts were the top three. The rankings in Table 3 below were derived by dividing the total number of crashes recorded in the district by the total national recorded crashes. The rankings show that in terms of total recorded crashes the top police districts are Gaborone West, Gaborone, Serowe, Francistown and Molepolole. This points to the need for more resources to be directed to these districts in order to cut down on the rate of road crashes in the country. However, it is important to note that although these districts record high numbers of crashes it does not necessarily follow that fatalities and serious injuries are also high in these districts. Tsabong, Ghanzi and Kasane police districts recorded low annual crashes for the past five years but they are the top three districts in fatalities per recorded crashes over the same period. This indicates that although these districts are low in terms of total reported crashes, they experience a higher proportion of crashes that are fatal, or vehicle occupancy is slightly higher in them compared to other districts. Table 3 Police districts by rank of crash Police District Gaborone West Gaborone Serowe Francistown Molepolole Kanye Kutlwano Maun Mochudi Selebi-Phikwe Letlhakane Lobatse Tsabong Ghanzi Kasane.3 FATALITIES PER THOUSAND CRASHES Table 4 illustrates that in the past five years the average number of people killed per recorded crashes was 4. This means that to achieve the Decade of Action for Road Safety goal of reducing the total number of people killed by half (or ), the total annual recorded crashes should be reduced to at least 47 by the year. It is important to note that police districts have different levels of risk in terms of deaths and serious injuries. The table shows that Kasane, Maun, Lobatse, Serowe, Ghanzi and Tsabong recorded high deaths per thousand recorded crashes in. 3

A comparison of fatal crashes to fatalities shows a positive correlation between the two. When fatal crashes go up fatalities also go up. Total recorded fatal crashes in 6 were 3, resulting in 49 deaths. Total recorded fatal crashes went up to 369 in 7, resulting in 47 deaths. On average, more than one life is lost for every fatal crash. This shows a clear correlation between fatal crashes and fatalities. Police districts with high fatal crashes are Serowe, Gaborone West, Gaborone, Kutlwano, Molepolole, Kanye and Mochudi. This calls for specific interventions or road safety strategies for these districts.

FATAL CRASHES AND FATALITIES 6- This table illustrates fatal crashes, fatalities and the proportion of fatalities to fatal crashes for the past five years. It shows that on average a fatal crash claimed more than one life and the range was between.4 in and.347 in 7. The proportion of fatalities to fatal crashes shows that a slight change in fatal crashes results in a significant change in fatalities. Table 7 Fatal crashes and fatalities 6- Year Fatal crashes Fatalities Fatalities/fatal crashes Figure 7 on the following page shows that between 6 and 7 fatal crashes increased by 47, resulting in an increase of 68 deaths. Between 7 and 8 fatal crashes went down by 4 and this resulted in a reduction of 4 fatalities. Fatal crashes in 9 went up by 7, resulting in an increase of deaths, and in there were 4 fewer fatal crashes and 78 fewer deaths.

Total crashes, fatalities and serious injuries did not change significantly between 6 and. The total number of recorded crashes stood at in compared to 7 3 in 6. The number of crashes moved upwards between 6 and 8 and dropped between 8 and. Fatalities and serious injuries followed a similar trend. Although an increase in total crashes cannot result in the same increase in both fatalities and serious injuries, it is clear from the statistics that when total crashes go down both fatalities and serious injuries go down too. Figure 9 Crashes, fatalities and serious injuries trends Fatalities Serious injuries Total crashes.9 CASUALTIES BY JUNCTION TYPE 6- Sections of road without junctions accounted for most fatalities during the past five years. In 6 people killed on non-junction sections of the road accounted for 8.3% of the total, and in 7 this rose to 9.%. The non-junction sections accounted for 83.3%, 87.4% and 87.4% in 8, 9 and respectively. It is evident that more fatal crashes take place on open roads and corridors than on roads with junctions and traffic controls. This clearly points to the need to target these roads more vigorously and effectively. 8
