Road traffic accidents are now the second leading cause of death among young people - with young men most at risk. Nearly three times more young men than young women are killed or injured on roads every year. Globally, 1.2 million people are killed on roads every year and up to 50 million more are injured and remain disabled for life.

Around 85% of deaths from road traffic crashes occur in developing countries, costing them between 1-1.5% of their annual GNP. Without action, and with the growing number of cars on the roads in thriving new middle-income countries like India and Brazil, road deaths and disabilities are likely to rise still further.

Through the eyes of road campaigner Harman Sidhu, who is himself a paraplegic after a road crash, this special Life program looks at the current situation in both countries - and reviews what positive steps are being taken to confront this serious health issue.

The other titles in the series are:

1. Edge Of Islam - Three Muslim students face a choice between their faith and their future.

2. Castro Or Quit - Two young doctors in Venezuela have to decide whether to leave the country or stay with their patients.

3. No Country For Young Girls? - A young Indian woman has to choose - stay with a husband who doesn't want female children, or make it on her own.

4. The Unforgiven - Should General Butt Naked (née Joshua Blahyi) - now a Christian pastor - be forgiven for his role in Liberia's horrific civil war?

5. Looking For My Gypsy Roots - Hungarian film director Arpad faces a dilemma - should he track down his Roma father?

6. The Dilemma Of The White Ant - Dominic Ongwen is both a victim and alleged perpetrator of LRA war crimes. Should he face an international court?

7. Three Sisters - Eritrea's women fought in the war; should they now liberate themselves from harmful traditional practices?

8. The Pied Piper Of Eyasi - The Hadza are among Africa's last hunter gatherers - should they follow charismatic Baallow into the modern world?

9. The Prince - A young Pakistani landowner chooses between trying to implement the MDGs in the village that his family owns, and a quiet life.

10. Running On Empty - Highlights the plight of two young mothers - one in South Wales and the other in Northern Ethiopia.

Reviews
"Life 6 is a wonderfully educational series that presents the viewers with the dilemmas faced by specific individuals in the socio-historical and economic context of their communities in the midst of an increasingly globalized world. The tremendous value of this series is that, in the brief thirty minutes that each episode lasts, it captures the complexities of the lives of those in it as they face Western influence that force them to reassert, defend, or challenge their local and/or individual iden
