عنوان مقاله [English]
Despite Significant improvements in road safety in several countries over the past few decades, 1.2 million people are killed every year in road traffic crashes, and up to 50 million people are injured, many suffering life-long disability. In recognition of this growing global crisis, the United Nations General Assembly passed many resolutions since May 29, 2003. In addition to urging member states to address the growing problem of road traffic injuries, the resolutions called for international cooperation to support the efforts of developing countries in particular. The resolutions invited the World Health Organization, in collaboration with the United Nations regional commissions, to coordinate road safety efforts within the United Nations family. In this article I want to survey the UN resolutions on improving global road safety.
