Going Global

Traffic safety crisis is a tragedy that takes a heavy toll on the daily well-being of individuals. The devastating impact of traffic deaths and injuries knows no borders. Ultimately, solutions must be global as well. Future breakthroughs in our efforts to address tougher safety challenges depend on stronger global collaboration.

Faced with the daunting task of making life more secure for the public, the Korean government has mapped out an ambitious goal of leading global efforts to turn an accident-free future into reality. In an effort to achieve the national objective, the Korea Transportation Safety Authority (TS) is working on the front lines of traffic safety research, strategies, education, and campaigns.

Its rapid and remarkable economic growth has placed Korea in an ideal position to serve as a bridge between developing and developed countries. Taking advantage of the unique role, TS devised a two-track strategy, wherein it shares its know-how with developing countries, while learning extensive expertise from developed countries.

TS will actively deepen existing partnerships. At the same time, we hope to discover untapped opportunities for new cooperation with new partners. TS aspires to build a broader network—which can reach every corner of the world—for global partnerships in improving traffic safety.
