Fourth United Nations Global Road Safety Week 8th -14th May
The Global Road safety Week is organised by the UN Road Safety Collaboration, which aims to ‘discuss global road safety issues’ and ‘facilitate international cooperation and strengthen global and regional coordination bewteen UN agencies’.
Throughout the UK organisations will be managing events for UN Global Road Safety Week 2017, which gets underway on Monday.
Timed to coincide with the anniversary of the launch of the Decade of Action for Road Safety on 11 May 2011, the message is asking drivers to #SlowDown and save lives.
In support of the week, road safety stakeholders and groups across the UK have organised special events, all of which can be viewed on an interactive map on the Global Road Safety Week website or the image below.
