Between 2000 and 2009, nearly 37,000 children (aged 0-14) were injured in traffic accidents, 424 of which were killed, according to findings of a report published Wednesday by the Or Yarok (Green Light) organization.

The report also revealed that during that time there was actually a dramatic fall in the number of child fatalities per 100,000 children, from 3.7 in 2000 to 1.2 in 2009.

However, Israel is still in first place, among developed nations, in the percentage of children killed in traffic accidents - 8 percent.
