Parliamentarians worldwide are being urged to support action to meet the United Nation’s (UN) target to halve road deaths by the end of the decade. With 3500 people killed every day in traffic crashes the Manifesto #4RoadSafety issued by the Global Network for Road Safety Legislators highlights the measures that can help prevent this tragic waste of human life on the world’s roads. The Manifesto #4RoadSafety includes ten key recommendations to encourage parliamentarians to support the current United Nation’s Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020) and endorses a new ‘SAVE LIVES’ package of road injury prevention measures issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The Manifesto #4RoadSafety includes recommendations on speed management and the Safe System approach, occupational road safety, good governance and funding for road injury prevention, the role of the multilateral development banks, and proposes a new UN target for road safety in 2030.
