message from WHO General Director

message from UN Special RS Envoy 

Special Message from Jean Todt, UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety for the 2017 Global Road Safety Week. The theme of the 2017 Global Road Safety Week is #SlowDown to save lives. 1.24 million people die each year on the road placing road traffic injuries among the top ten causes of death worldwide. The higher the speed, the greater the risk of a crash and severity of injury. Always be sure to respect the speed limit. Slow Down to Save Lives.

Jeannot Mersch FEVR president:

“Despite that the well chosen slogan is Slow Down to Save Lives we should not forget that reducing the speed, especially in urban areas, will also reduce a lot the injuries, among vulnerable road users ( pedestrians & cyclists)  as are above all our children, elderly and people with reduced mobility”

” Ce thème  est bien choisi et important “ralentissez” pour sauver des vies.
Cependant il ne faudrait pas oublier qu’en réduisant la vitesse, et ceci surtout dans les agglomérations, réduira aussi de facon assez spectaculaire les blessures graves, surtout parmi les usagers vulnérables ( piétons & cyclistes) que sont surtout nos enfants, personnes agées et nos concitoyens avec une mobilité réduite”
