Legislative database

18 January 2012

WHO and UN Road safety Collaboration partners have developed an on-line global database of road safety legislation, building on the comprehensive work already undertaken by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Working Party on Road Traffic Safety.

The database provides information on legislation targeting a number of factors that are important for the prevention of road traffic injuries, such as speed limits, safety-belts and child-restraint laws, helmet laws, blood-alcohol concentration limits, daytime running light requirements, mobile phone laws, and licensing regulations. The database is searchable by factor, country or region, and links to other informative or legislative documents that can be found on the Internet. This database will be updated regularly, through contributions from partner organizations
