One Year of the Decade of Action: Pressure Must Stay High to Make Roads Safer

Press release - 10 May 2012

On this day one year ago, the United Nations launched the Decade of Action for Road Safety, an ambitious commitment aimed at reducing the worrying global trend of an increase in risk on the roads. The World Health Organisation put the writing on the wall by estimating that by 2030 road traffic injuries would become the fifth leading cause of death. One year into the Decade of Action, many good initiatives have been taken already and there are good signals that allow ETSC to believe that the goal of stabilising and subsequently reducing the global number of road traffic deaths can be reached.
