The second UN Global Road Safety Week

Called for in the April 2012 UN General Assembly resolution on Improving global road safety, the Week will be celebrated from 6-12 May 2013.
The theme is “pedestrian safety”. Pedestrians constitute a major group at risk of death, injury and disability on the road. The Week will contribute to:

  • drawing attention to the need for pedestrian safety;
  • generating action on measures which work to increase pedestrian safety; and
  • achieving the goal of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 to save 5 million lives.

Governments, with support from civil society, academia, the private sector and the international community, are all encouraged to plan and host national and local events during the Second UN Global Road Safety Week.
This milestone event on the Decade calendar is a unique opportunity to make progress on saving lives, and we hope that you will join in ensuring its success.
