Safe to Learn Report launched

14 May 2015

A joint global advocacy report, ‘Safe to Learn’ by the FIA Foundation and UNICEF launched ahead of Global Road Safety Week sets out a strategy focusing on ensuring safe routes to schools as an important first step to building political and community support for wider road safety actions, and particularly for low speed regimes in urban and peri-urban areas where high concentrations of child pedestrians and cyclists interact with motorised traffic.

The report, launched for UN Global Road Safety Week highlights examples of successful ‘safe to learn’ strategies in high and middle income countries, where significant investment of hundreds of millions of dollars has shown that streets can be made safer, creating conditions in which walking and cycling to school increases, as child casualties and vehicles speeds drop.
