The Week will focus on speed management and what can be done to address this key risk factor for road traffic deaths and injuries. The Fourth UN Global Road Safety Week seeks to increase understanding of the dangers of speed and generate action on measures to address speed, thereby saving lives on the roads.


Speed contributes to around one-third of all fatal road traffic crashes in high-income countries, and up to half in low- and middle-income countries.


The Save Lives: #SlowDown campaign will be hosted on a new platform at which is launching soon!

You can follow the campaign on social media for the latest updates before the website launches:

This week will follow the legacy of the #SaveKidsLives campaign, which was highly interactive and engaging attracting over 1 million people globally in support of its message.

In developing the week, a new online platform will be created to host the week, which will also host information about all other weeks. This ensures that the fourth week and subsequent weeks will be consistently engaging, easy to navigate and connected.
