The transport department said in a statement the governments have called for a reduction of 15 per cent in road traffic deaths in the next five years. Senior road safety officials will meet within the next month to discuss existing programs, check their effectiveness and plan strategy, the department said. The release said traffic deaths rose 12 per cent to in 1972 This marked an upturn after the fatality rate had levelled off for several years because of better vehicle design and other safety measures. There were injuries in 1972 and the cost of road accidents was billion.

There had already been talks among officials of the 11 governments in the last few months. Provincial governments are responsible for motor vehicle administration, driver licensing, road construction and road operations. The federal transport department is involved in traffic safety research and enforcing safety standards for new motor vehicles. P.E.P.
