Global Legislators Forum meets in London

14 December 2016

The Global Forum for Road Safety Legislators, hosted by the Towards Zero Foundation, serves as an open platform to exchange best practices in road safety policies and law-making, and to encourage more countries to adopt comprehensive and effective road safety strategies. The Global Forum was established following the 2nd Global High Level Conference on Road Safety in 2014.

Its first meeting was opened in London by HRH Prince Michael of Kent, patron of the Towards Zero Foundation where members of parliament from across the world adopted The Westminster Declaration.
