Royal support for The Decade of Action for Road Safety

11 November 2010

The Commission for Global Road Safety recently met in Brussels to review progress in raising road safety on the international agenda, and discuss its future role in supporting the implementation of the Decade of Action.

At the event our Royal Patron, HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO, who is also patron of the Commission, said:

“It is the view of our Commission, and indeed many road safety experts, that we have the potential to save up to five million lives in the Decade of Action. But this will only happen if serious efforts are made to make road safety a priority across the world.

"Governments, industry, non-governmental organisations and ordinary road users must all have a role in making this happen.”
