FEVR, who for nearly 1/4 century now, has lobbied to have Victim concerns considered, has prepared a concept note for Pillar 5 of the Decade of Action for Road Safety. (thx to Amy Aaron-Thomas from RoadPeace )
- The Post Crash Response pillar in the global road safety plan covers both medical care and justice.
- To date, the focus has been on medical care with little priority given to the Post Crash Response pillar’s justice related activities.
- The role of the justice system in helping deliver safer roads has been overlooked, partly due to the view that crashes were unintentional and did not involve criminal culpability.
