Launch of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action 2021-2030 on 28.10.2021
The plan has as its target a 50% reduction of road deaths and injuries. To achieve it will require hard work by many actors and much political will throughout the decade. Yet for citizens of all countries, even if this target is achieved, this will mean that many among them will lose their life or be seriously injured in a road crash during the coming decade. This is a very sad fact for road victim advocates, for whom the only acceptable target is zero / as close to zero as possible, as expressed in the World Day banner: We do NOT want MORE victims to remember, we want to live our lives TOGETHER!
