The World Health Organisation has warned vehicle users to stop excessive speed on the road to reduce accidents globally.

WHO gave this caution from her headquarters in Geneva during her 6th UN Global Road Safety Week held on 17-23 of May annually.

The campaign is focusing on a 30km/hr speed limit to be the norm for all towns, villages, and cities worldwide.

The UN health agency said that more than a 1.3million persons die in road traffic accidents-1 person dies at least every 24seconds. It was estimated that 40-50% drives above the speed limit and every 1km/hr increase can lead to accident.

WHO said if speed can be limited, accident and road problems will reduce.
