United Nations Urges Member States to Improve Road Safety

The UN General Assembly recently adopted a resolution on the growing road safety crisis, urging Member States to take swift action particularly as the international community discusses the post-2015 development agenda. 

The UN also recognized the efforts of the Multilateral Development Banks Road Safety Initiative, coordinated by the World Bank-led Global Road Safety Facility, in supporting the Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020) which aims to halve road-related deaths and save five million lives by 2020.
