What's it all about?

In 2011 the United Nations launched a ‘Decade of Action for Road Safety’ with the aim of reducing global road deaths by 2020. The goal is “... to stabilise and then reduce road traffic fatalities around the world by increasing activities at national, regional and local levels.” 

‘Make Roads Safe, The Campaign for Global Road Safety’ estimate that every six seconds someone is killed or seriously injured on the world’s roads. They are calling it a “global epidemic” comparable to Malaria and Tuberculosis. Despite this comparison to global killers, road injury is “utterly neglected”. They say that it’sTime for Action and are urging governments, business leaders and the public to support the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety.
