The theme of the Fifth UNGRSW was leadership, calling for strong leadership to push strategic, evidence-based action to save lives on the road. The slogan was #SpeakUp.
NGOs shared their road safety demands with decision makers, using #SpeakUp signboards, petitions, and events to highlight the dangers that people face on their everyday journeys and call for urgent action to reduce the 1.35 million road traffic deaths that occur on the world’s roads every year.
