New UN Global Road Safety Week website now live

1 March 2017

In advance of the Fourth UN Global Road Safety Week, there is now a new website dedicated to it.

In the coming months, this web site will be the main source of information, messages and materials related to the Fourth UN Global Road Safety Week to be held 8th -14th May 2017 and its related #SlowDown campaign. The Week and campaign seek to increase understanding of the dangers of speed and generate action on measures to address this major risk for road traffic death and injury. The hope is that this effort as one of many, will contribute to achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal target 3.6.
