UN Decade of Action

Make roads safe

We are supporting the Decade of Action global campaign to make our roads safe.

'Make Roads Safe' is the UN General Assembly goal for the decade. The goal is to stabilise and then reduce the forecast level of road traffic fatalities around the world by 2020. Millions of deaths could potentially be prevented as a result.

Everyday around the world 3,500 people leave home never to return because they have been suddenly, violently killed in a road traffic collision.

Help make our roads safer

Many of us know someone who has been affected by a road crash, either by being injured themselves, or through suffering a bereavement of injury to a family member or friend. These tragic deaths are preventable.

The Decade of Action is your opportunity to make our communities and streets safe whether you’re a driver, passenger, motorcyclist, cyclist, or pedestrian. Making Oxfordshire's roads safer is the responsibility of every road user.

You can support the campaign by help by raising awareness and campaigning for safer roads in your community, school and workplace. And by working together we can all play an important role in achieving the decade’s goals.
