Safe affordable helmets

27 November 2023

The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety (the Alliance) and Uber launch a new partnership to stimulate a global push for greater availability of safe, affordable motorcycle helmets.

Motorcyclists account for 28% of all road traffic fatalities worldwide and motorcycle deaths are increasing.

With support from Uber, the Alliance will convene a global working group of road safety experts that will develop tools to support civil society advocacy for increased availability of safe, affordable, effective helmets.

NGOs are at the forefront of advocacy for motorcycle helmet use, laws, standards, and enforcement. The tools developed will bring together successful case studies from NGOs around the world that can be used as inspiration for other civil society advocates seeking to increase safe helmet usage in their countries. They will consider the barriers to safe helmet use, including affordability, availability, lack of standards, and misconceptions, and how these can be overcome with reference to NGOs’ experiences.
