Make Roads Safe is an international campaign to put global road traffic injuries on the G8 and UN sustainability agendas.
Did you know? Every six seconds someone is killed or maimed on the world’s roads.
Building on the work of the Commission for Global Road Safety, the Make Roads Safe campaign aims to raise public and political awareness of a global road traffic injury epidemic that kills at least 3000 people, and 500 children, every day.
In March 2008 the United Nations General Assembly is due to hold a debate on the global road safety crisis.
We need to ensure that this debate results in a strong UN resolution demanding action to reduce road traffic injuries in low and middle income countries.
With your help we can begin to Make Roads Safe. Please join the campaign by signing the petition below which will be delivered to the UN Secretary General in advance of the UN debate.
