UN General Assembly Adopts Resolution on Easing Global Road Safety Crisis

1 April 2008

The General Assembly yesterday adopted a resolution aimed at alleviating the global road safety crisis,

The Assembly encouraged States to strengthen their commitments to road safety by observing the annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims in December, organizing global road safety weeks and encouraging fleet-owning organizations in both the private and public sectors to develop and implement policies and practices that would reduce road-crash risks.

The Assembly welcomed the Russian Federation’s offer to host and provide financial support for the first global high-level conference on road safety, to be held next year.

RoadSafe leads the work of gTKP to support the dissemination of best practice.
