A new UN Global Road Safety Target – to reduce deaths and serious injuries by 50% by 2030

  • September 18, 2020

The UN General Assembly has adopted a new resolution on road safety, co-sponsored by 55 governments.

The resolution proclaims the period 2021–2030 as the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety, with a goal of reducing road deaths and serious injuries by at least 50% between 2021 and 2030. The resolution calls for action to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries as a pressing development priority. It also endorses the Stockholm Declaration, approved at the third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, held in Stockholm in February.
