Global Fleet Champions supports the Towards Zero Foundation’s #50by30 campaign calling for governments around the world to make a new #50by30 commitment to halve road deaths and serious injuries in a new decade of action for road safety.
Today 3,700 people will die in road crashes on the world’s roads and many more will be seriously injured. The same will happen again tomorrow and in all of the days that follow. Many road deaths involve a vehicle being driven for work and vehicles driven for work also cause extensive pollution. The safe and sustainable operation of vehicles that move goods or people must be regulated and enforced by governments, and managed by both private and public sector business leaders through risk management and environmental practices.
Evidence shows that setting a road safety target is an effective way to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured in road crashes. A new target and a new decade of action will help to save 675,000 lives a year, accelerate progress in global road injury prevention, and work towards a world eventually free from road fatalities and serious injuries.
Get involved: Support the #50by30 campaign by endorsing the target to halve road deaths and serious injuries by 2030. Join the advocacy effort by asking your government to commit to #50by30. Find out more about the campaign here.
