Sidewalks and safe crossings save lives

May 8, 2013: More than half the roads assessed in iRAP projects around the world are rated just 1- or 2-stars for pedestrians. More than 80% of those roads have no sidewalk.

Safe walking should be a right for all.

Improving pedestrian Star Ratings will help ensure tragic deaths and debilitating injuries are avoided. Simple treatments such as sidewalks and pedestrian crossings can help transform high risk roads into safe walking environments.

The social and economic return on these investments is significant, as is our moral obligation.

In this second UN Global Road Safety Week, help make a difference – make sure your roads are designed to achieve at least 3-stars for pedestrians!
