Although the road safety in China has made great achievement, the current situation is still not optimistic. The new situations and challenges of road safety in China are analyzed. There are still many factors affecting road traffic safety, and the foundation of road safety is still weak. Currently, the accidents are likely to relapse, the accident rate and lethality rate are very high, the road safety in rural areas is not optimistic, the accidents caused by commercial vehicles frequently happened, and the devastating accidents with group deaths and injuries are still very frequent. The challenges include: the hidden dangers are prominent, the safety awareness of citizens is very poor, and the management, enforcement of road safety and emergency rescue skills are low.
With a series of policies and measures gradually taking effect, road traffic accidents in China went down quickly. China has successfully achieved the objectives of curbing high incidence and gradually reducing accidents, gradually improving road safety year on year. Although the road traffic safety has been keeping a relatively stable level, there are still many factors affecting road traffic safety, and the foundation of road safety is still weak.
