Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020


With approximately 1.3 million fatalities and up to 50 million injuries occurring on roads around the world each year, the United Nations has unanimously proclaimed 2011 through 2020 as the Decade of Action for Road Safety. The UN General Assembly’s goal for the decade is "to stabilize and then reduce the forecast level of road traffic fatalities around the world" by 2020,” potentially preventing millions of deaths as a result.

ITE played an instrumental role in urging the UN to make traffic safety a priority, and the Institute has been at the forefront of the efforts leading into the Decade of Action. Since the May 11, 2011 launch date, transportation professionals and safety advocates across the globe have been contributing to activities and events that will raise awareness about road safety and the related challenge of eliminating fatal crashes.

The links below provide resources and information about the initiatives, partnerships, activities and programs aimed at making the Decade of Action for Road Safety a success.
