WHO releases road safety technical package "Save LIVES"

The road safety technical package is an evidence-based inventory of priority interventions with a focus on speed management, leadership, infrastructure design and improvement, vehicle safety standards, enforcement of traffic laws and post-crash survival.

To reduce road traffic deaths and injuries, simultaneous actions are needed at national and local levels in the focal areas of the Save LIVES technical package. Since the reality of road safety policy implementation differs across countries, this package should not be seen as a one-size-fits-all solution, but rather as a guide to support decision-making on priority interventions for scaling up the road safety policy response towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of halving road traffic deaths and injuries by 2020 and of providing access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all by 2030.
