Tajikistan has yet to establish a policy to separate and protect vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians. Consequently, these road users are disproportionately affected by road traffic crashes, with 33%* of all annual fatalities being pedestrians.
National speed limits and drink-driving laws are well enforced, with only 3%* of crashes recorded as involving alcohol. National seat-belt laws have a low enforcement rate, but apply to both front and rear seat occupants. Child restraint laws are poorly enforced.
Scaling up capacity of Governments, civil society organizations and the Tajikistan Red Crescent National Society in road safety fundamentals and advocacy for RS through sub-regional and national workshops
Knolwedge and practices:
Establishment of online library for public awareness campaigns.
Development of the technical guide, in-country trainings on first response in road crashes
Training of trainers (ToT) road policing training for 15-20 mid-level road police on evidence-based and outcome-focused policing.
The TRACECA Road Safety II project brought together governments and civil society to actively promote the safety and security of road users, the public, property, and the environment within the Europe-Caucasus-Asia region’s transport corridor.
Safe to School – Safe to Home incorporates assessment of road safety conditions, the installation of appropriate and low-cost local traffic engineering improvements, extensive road safety education for children, parents and the community, together with enhanced enforcement of helmet wearing, parking restrictions and speeding.
Road user groups
With around 186 300 children under 18 years die from road traffic crashes annually, it is unacceptable that some countries still do not have legislation regarding obligatory usage and set safety standards for child restraints.
Commercial drivers cover great amount of distance on daily basis and are prone to multiple risk factors due to the vehicle type, conditions on the road and the often the objects that they transport. GRSP dedicates a lot of attention to this road user group because of the impact they have on road safety situation and surrounding road users.
