Empowering Communities to Manage Speed
Speed is one of the main risk factors in road crashes and is a leading contributor to death and serious injury. Higher speeds are associated with a significantly higher crash risk: even small increases in speed significantly increase the probability of death or injury. Traffic crashes are now a leading cause of death worldwide, and the number one cause of death and serious injury for young people aged 5 to 29.

Things can be different though; we know what works. To help address the collective impact of speed as a contributor to crash risks, the World Resources Institute and World Bank’s Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) invite you to the official launch of a new Low-Speed Zone Guide, which helps empower communities and decision-makers to plan, design and implement effective interventions. We will also discuss an upcoming comprehensive Global Speed Management Guide for policymakers.

This event is part of the 6th UN Global Road Safety Week.
