Children of Jordan below 18 years are particularly at risk and their proportion of all casualties is rising reaching about 28% in 2016, yet limited research has been carried out to address this problem. This study investigates the magnitude and nature of the child road safety problem with the final aim of identifying the necessary interventions to improve child road safety in Jordan. Road crash death data were provided by the Jordan Traffic Institute. Additional data were sought through interviews with the Jordanian Government and other non-government stakeholders such as the UNICEF Makani Centres (community centres for children). A seat belt observational survey was also conducted. All the data were synthesised to provide a much better understanding of the magnitude and nature of the child road safety issue in Jordan. Potential interventions for Jordan to improve its child road safety situation are provided based on the present data analyse.
