Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020

On March 2, 2010, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously passed a historic resolution (A/64/L.44/Rev.1) declaring 2011-2020 to be the Decade of Action for Road Safety.

The Decade of Action will serve as an excellent framework in which all stakeholders - government agencies, educational institutions, non-governmental organizations, corporations, and more - can work together to improve road safety both locally and globally. The Decade of Action was officially launched on May 11, 2011.

ASIRT, in collaboration with other US road safety partners, organized a day of activities on Capitol Hill on May 11 to launch the Decade of Action in Washington, DC. For more information, please view the press release.
