FIA WELCOMES NEW UN RESOLUTION ON ROAD SAFETY
The UN General Assembly today approved a resolution supporting coordinated global action for road safety. In particular, the resolution could pave the way for the creation of a UN Road Safety Fund – a project actively supported by the FIA High Level Panel for Road Safety and FIA President Jean Todt, who is also the UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety.

FIA Action for Road Safety
The FIA’s ‘Action for Road Safety’ campaign, launched in support of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, is based around 4 key priorities:
- Advocacy at the highest levels – The FIA has developed key working relationships with international institutions such as the UN, the World Health Organisation, the European Union and the World Bank and governments around the world.
- Action by clubs on the ground – The FIA is supporting its club network through the FIA Grant Programme. Established in 2012, the Grant Programme works with clubs to improve road safety at a local level.
- Motor sport and Road Safety – The FIA has mobilised the motor sport community to promote the FIA’s Action for Road Safety.
- Campaigns & Partnerships - The FIA has launched its own initiatives, such as the 10 Golden Rules and an online pledge in its mission to make roads safer. To mobilise for the cause, the FIA has also established numerous institutional and corporate partnerships with leading actors.
