dc.description.notesWe report data on the distribution and determinants of road deaths and injuries for all victims in Colombia, with the aim of defining targets and priorities for highway death prevention in that country and other rapidly urbanizing nations. Using information from Colombia's Fund for the Prevention of Road Injury and the national death registry, we studied data on deaths and injuries from 1991 to 1995 for the nation as a whole and for the country's two largest cities, Santa Fe de Bogotá and Medellín. Deaths and injuries are rising in the nation as a whole. Of the deaths, 75 percent occur in urban areas, and 80 percent are in males. Pedestrians aged 15-34 are a peak subgroup. Thirty-four percent of deaths are attibutable to speeding and/or alcohol consumption. Death tolls are highest at night and on weekends. Specific priority targets for intervention are indicated by the fact that 75 percent of road deaths in Colombia occur in urban areas and that 80 percent of all victims are malesen_US
