The Second UN Global Road Safety Week was held on the 6-12 May 2013 and was dedicated to pedestrian safety. Requested by the UN General Assembly, the Week has drawn attention to the urgent need to better protect pedestrians worldwide, generate action on the measures needed to do so, and contribute to achieving the goal of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 to save millions of lives.
Millions of South Africans are dependent on walking as a key element in their routes to work or school, and this increases their exposure to risk. Statistics indicate that pedestrian and hit-and-run crashes are the highest contributors (44.76%) to road crashes in South Africa.
Join GRSP ZA in support of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020.
Have a look at what GRSP ZA has been up to during the Second UN Global Road Safety Week:
The Safe Roads 4 Youth project is a three year project that develops tests and evaluates a flexible framework to address drink driving prevention in emerging countries taking into account cultural diversity. This project carries out preventive interventions at community level, aimed at mobilizing their citizens, better train local players and prevents drinking and driving in different communities, starting with young adults. The effects of actions will be evaluated in each case, in order to understand the influence of local culture and social representations and the effectiveness of their actions.
The preventive actions are being undertaken in 3 different countries: Vietnam, Argentina and South Africa. The project will be developed in each country in partnership with major non-profit organizations - Handicap International in Vietnam, Luchemos por la Vida in Argentina and Global Road Safety Partnership in South Africa - and specialized research teams from local universities.Read more...
