Home/About/Advocacy and grants

The Global Road Safety Partnership’s Advocacy and Grants Programme aims to promote the adoption and implementation of effective road safety policies in low- and middle-income countries.

Globally, road safety legislation addressing behavioural risk factors (child restraints, drink driving, helmets, seat-belts and speed) does not meet internationally good practice.

For example, the World Health Organization’s 2015 Global Status Report reveals that fewer than 30% of the world’s population live in countries with good practice legislation on helmets, speed or child restraints.

Passage and implementation of evidence-based road safety legislation addressing behavioural risk factors is recognized as one important way to improve road user behaviour and reduce road crash injuries and deaths.
