Commitment is not enough — road safety needs action. Following the #SpeakUp campaign and in the run up to the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety 2020, the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety has launched #CommitToAct.
#CommitToAct supports NGOs in pushing their local and national governments to make clear, meaningful, and specific commitments for road safety actions at policy, implementation, and enforcement levels, and then to track and highlight these commitments. These commitments can be big or small, but what matters is that they are acted on.
#CommitToAct illustrates the following:
The campaign focuses on several key elements which can be found here. At the moment, we encourage our youth network to take part in the 'People's Survey' to have your voices heard on how road traffic crashes and injuries affect you!
The survey will collect the experiences and impact of road crashes as seen from the eyes of citizens around the world, to show decision makers why they must #CommitToAct. Take the survey and encourage your friends, family, and everyone you know to complete it too.
Road traffic injuries are not just statistics, they are real lives and real people. Many of us have been affected by road traffic crashes or know people whose lives and relationships have been torn apart by the tragedy that claims 1.3 million lives every year.
Complete the People’s Survey and share it with your friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors. Let’s make our voices heard and show our leaders the impact that road traffic crashes are having on our fellow citizens. #CommitToAct.
Your voice can change the world!
You can currently access the survey in three languages, with others to be added.
