Road Safety Week NZ will coincide with the UN Global Road Safety Week in 2017, and the theme is #SlowDown.
Why slow down?
Slowing down is very safe. We all want to arrive safely at our destination. By slowing down, we make our roads safer for our children, families and friends.
Small changes, big results. Research shows that a 5% cut in average speed can lead to a 30% reduction in the number of fatal road traffic crashes.
Speed up the solutions. When the world commits to #SlowDown and implements evidence-based solutions, road traffic accidents will fall, and we will save lives.
