Back to news

On 30 June and 1 July 2022, the General Assembly of the United Nations held the first High-Level Meeting on Global Road Safety in New York, USA. Multiple road safety leaders and ministers attended the meeting, which gave them a platform to stress the need for effective and concrete action within the road safety arena.

Furthermore, the High-Level Meeting allowed them to address challenges and progress related to the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021–2030, which aims to halve road traffic deaths within the next eight years.

The Global Road Safety Partnership’s (GRSP) CEO, Dave Cliff, gave a speech during the meeting and declared that GRSP strongly endorses the global plan and its guidelines. Additionally, he listed three main recommendations to help accelerate the plan’s implementation:

  1. Improve serious crash investigation and data quality, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
  2. Enact and enforce better legislation.
  3. Improve road policing.
