Stepping Up the Fight Against Road Deaths
  Every year, almost 1.3 million people are killed in road crashes around the globe, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In September, world leaders vowed to “halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents by 2020” at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in New York.

The target of a 50% reduction in road deaths is much more ambitious than the previous international commitment: The UN “Decade of Action for Road Safety”, running from 2011 to 2020, set as its aim to first halt the rise in the number of road deaths and then begin to reduce them by 2020.

This week, the ITF launches four new reports to help policy makers choose the most effective approaches to improving road safety in their national context:

- Improving Safety for Motorcycle, Scooter and Moped Riders
Why does Road Safety Improve When Economic Times Are Hard?
