National Road Safety Week began as part of the UN’s Decade of Action for Road Safety.
The UN General Assembly have described the global road toll (death and injury) as a “major public health problem with a broad range of social and economic consequences which, if unaddressed, may affect the sustainable development of countries and hinder progress towards the Millennium Development Goals”. It is for this reason that they declared the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. The landmark Resolution was co-sponsored by 100 countries.
This goal is what we’re all about here at Road Safety Education Limited and we have enthusiastically joined the crusade. Over the decade the UN ran a number of campaigns, in which we were involved. We also developed our own initiatives to help reach that ultimate goal.
