[NEWS] Global Targets Agreed for SDG Road Safety Progress

FIA Foundation Deputy Director Avi Silverman said: “These targets are essential if there is to be global progress towards the SDG agenda on road safety. They provide a clear set of actions to be prioritized by governments worldwide. And importantly, they take into account the needs of children and the vulnerable, setting the key objectives to save lives on the world’s roads.”

The goal of Sustainable Development Goal 3.6 is to halve the number of road traffic casualties by 2020. The focus of SRD 11.2 is to provide everyone with a safe and sustainable transportation system, improve road safety and pay special attention to children and vulnerable groups.

WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said “Road injuries are the top cause of death for young people. It is simply not possible to improve child and adolescent health if we don’t address road traffic crashes”, which had emphasized the importance of the work, particularly for children and youngsters.
