The United Nations Campaign "Make Roads Safe" urges governments, businesses and community leaders to support the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. Road accidents are the leading cause of death globally for young people and kills 260,000 children under the age of 18 every year. Road safety experts believe that, with the right action, up to 5 million lives could be saved and 50 million injuries can be prevented during the Decade of Action for Road Safety. This will be an approximately 50% reduction in global mortality predictions in 2020.
Success of the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety in Indonesia depends on improving the safety of both roads and vehicles as well as addressing perceptions and risk behaviors of road users. Accurate statistical evaluation of interventions like the Integrated road Safety management System (IRSMS) prove to be quite useful world over in keeping track of progress made towards making our roads safer.
