The UN General Assembly proclaimed the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 in a landmark Resolution co-sponsored by 100 countries, describing global road death and injury as a "major public health problem with a broad range of social and economic consequences which, if unaddressed, may affect the sustainable development of countries and hinder progress towards the Millennium Development Goals."
RoadSave is aligned to this UN Decade of Action goal, aiming to stabilise and then reduce road traffic fatalities by 2020.
“Our aim has always been to make a large contribution to road safety and reduce roadside fatalities. Road traffic crashes take the lives of nearly 1.3 million people every year and it costs developing economies more than $100 billion a year. This is a strong indicator for the need of services like RoadSave, and the potential for such technologies to dramatically reduce fatalities, injuries and costs.”
