Motion text

That this House welcomes the proposal of the Commission for Global Road Safety, chaired by Lord Robertson of Port Ellen, for a United Nations Decade of Action for Global Road Safety with a global target to reduce the forecast 2020 level of road deaths by 50 per cent., potentially saving five million lives and avoiding 50 million serious injuries; strongly urges the Government to support the proposed decade of action during the forthcoming debate in the 64th Session of the UN General Assembly and to play a leading role in the first UN global Ministerial Meeting on Road Safety to be held in Moscow on 19-20 November 2009; recognises that road injury prevention has been a neglected issue of sustainable development and notes with concern that road crashes kill more than 1.3 million people every year mainly in low and middle income countries; calls on the Department for International Development actively to support the work of the World Bank's global Road Safety Facility and, in particular, to encourage all multilateral and bilateral donors to include in all road construction and rehabilitation projects they finance, a budget allocation dedicated to safety rating, assessment and infrastructure improvement; and encourages all UN Member States to take concerted action to make roads safe by promoting seat belt and helmet use, discouraging drink driving and inappropriate speed, encouraging further investment in safer motor vehicles and roads, and prioritising the protection of vulnerable road users.
