"How to" road safety manuals
One of the major projects of the UN Road Safety Collaboration is the production of a series of "how to" manuals which will assist governments to implement some of the recommendations of the World report on road traffic injury prevention. Four partners (the FIA Foundation for the Automobile and Society, the Global Road Safety Partnership, the World Health Organization and the World Bank) have already developed four of these manuals.
The manuals are practical and user-friendly, and provide step-by-step guidance on implementing specific interventions. The documents are produced using a standard template, with one agency taking the lead on producing each of the manuals. Four of the six manuals focus on key factors identified in the World report on road traffic injury prevention, namely, helmets, seat-belts and child restraints, speed, and drinking and driving, while the other two address the establishment of a lead agency on road safety, and traffic and injury data collection. Additional manuals may be developed over time.
