Commitment is not enough—road safety needs action. Following the #SpeakUp campaign and in the run up to the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety 2020, the Alliance has launched #CommitToAct.
#CommitToAct supports NGOs in pushing their local and national governments to make clear, meaningful, and specific commitments for road safety actions at policy, implementation, and enforcement levels, and then to track and highlight these commitments. These commitments can be big or small, but what matters is that they are acted on.
