Violence and Injury Prevention

Road safety strategies and action plans

Recommendation 3 of the World report on road traffic injury prevention encourages countries to prepare a road safety strategy that is multisectoral and multidisciplinary. The strategy should take into account the needs of all road users, including vulnerable road users. The road safety strategy needs to set ambitious, but realistic targets for at least five or ten years. Once the road safety strategy has been prepared, a national action plan, scheduling specific actions and allocating specific resources, should be developed.
