We are building a generation of road safety conscious young people all around the world. Young people that not only live the ideals of good road safety practise, behaviour and attitudes but also encourage their friends, relatives, loved ones and peers to also adopt safer approaches. Do you have what it takes to be a youth champion?
Become a YOUTH CHAMPION for road safety!
We believe young people should be part of the road safety solution. Start by being a role-model and pledge to be a road safety champion!

A youth champion for road safety has no specific profile; no defined background, ethnicity, colour, educational record, wealth, income or status. Just as the carnage of road traffic crashes care little about the person in the crash, so is the universal approach to saving lives, one role model, one champion at a time!
