Promoting a global campaign to prevent accidents for this reason
From 6 to 12 May 2019 the 5th Global Road Safety Week will be held around the world, promoted by the United Nations (UN) and coordinated by the World Health Organization (WHO).
This year, the week will focus on giving everyone a voice so they can come up with solutions to help reduce the number of fatalities and injuries caused by road traffic accidents.
On the occasion of this initiative, Fundación MAPFRE has joined the #Speakup campaign which deals with “Responsible mobile phone use while driving“.
Anyone can join the campaign in a very easy way: by answering a survey on MAPFRE and Fundación MAPFRE’s Social Network profiles.
The results will be revealed at the General Assembly of the Ibero-American Road Safety Observatory (OISEVI) which will be held in Madrid from 6 to 12 May, and at the high-level Ministerial Conference taking place in Stockholm in 2020.
Road Safety Week is an event promoted by the UN within the framework of their Sustainable Development Goals in order to reduce deaths on the roads by 50% by 2030.
