Make roads safe: a decade of action for road safety

Road traffic fatalities are forecast to increase over the next ten years from a current level of more than 1.3 million to more than 1.9 million by 2020. The Commission for Global Road Safety believes that the urgent priority is to halt this appalling and avoidable rise in road injury and then begin to achieve year on year reductions. The world could prevent 5 million deaths and 50 million serious injuries by 2020 by dramatically scaling up investment in road safety, at global, regional and national levels. The first Global Ministerial Meeting on road safety, to be held in Moscow in November 2009 has the opportunity to set a new direction for global road safety. The UN General Assembly will then debate the results of the Moscow Ministerial during its 64th Session. In this report the Commission makes ten recommendations to the Moscow Ministerial and UN General Assembly.
