Child pedestrians are among the highest-risk groups in Mozambique for road traffic injuries, the leading cause of death for children over the age of five in the country. Unlike their peers in developed countries, the vast majority of school children in Mozambique walk to school, and they usually do so unaccompanied by an adult. A child in Africa is twice as likely to die on the roads as a child in any other region of the world.
