YOURS in the media! Share your local stories about our work together

We have recently compiled a list of international and local media features from around the world in our collaborative efforts for road safety. Many of the news stories have been generated by news outlets who have placed the spotlight on youth and road safety issues as they have arisen on national media features around the globe. You can see them here as well as submit your own stories.


Since our inception in late 2009, YOURS has been working all around the world to bring road safety to young people on the ground. In the process, many media outlets have picked up on our collaborative efforts and we have recently compiled these features.

If you have been involved in a YOURS project that generated local or national media and it is not in the list, please share it with us!

It's really easy for your to share your YOURS media features. Just drop an email with a link or scan of the article to and we will feature it on this page. You can seen some of our features below:
