Global Road Safety Week will focus on pedestrian safety
Pedestrian safety will be the focus of the second UN Global Road Safety Week (6–12 May 2013).
In May 2011, the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 was launched in more than 100 countries, with a goal to prevent five million road traffic deaths by 2020.
The theme for the second road safety week was chosen as pedestrians constitute a major group at risk of death, injury and disability on the road, and are among the most vulnerable road users.
The week will focus on 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 five 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 2013 UN Global Road Safety Week.
