A POST-2015 AGENDA FOR HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT
The report calls for road safety to be included in the UN’s Post 2015 framework of Sustainable Development Goals. It also focuses on the need for safe and credible speed limits and recommends that the multilateral development banks should ensure that intended speeds on new or upgraded roads are compatible with minimum safety ratings.
A DECADE OF ACTION FOR ROAD SAFETY
The report calls on the UN to launch a decade of action with the aim to achieve a 50% reduction in the forecast number of road deaths by 2020, and recommends the adoption a five pillar ‘safe system’ action plan to: (1) build management capacity, (2) influence road design and network management, (3) influence vehicle safety design, (4) influence road user behaviour and (5) improve post-crash care.
