The WHO 2013 Global Status Report on Road Safety states "Middle income countries, that are motorizing rapidly, are the hardest hit" where "eighty per cent of road traffic deaths occur…" This is why IMPACT focuses on such countries in EU, Asia and Latin America to support not only reaching the 2020 EU road safety target of halving the road victims but also the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. In Europe the focus is on countries generally lagging behind in achieving results. Those are Romania (96), Poland (93), Bulgaria (82) and to a lesser extent Hungary (61) which have a road deaths rate per population far above the EU average of 55 deaths per million...


The aim of the IMPACT project is to boost international efforts to save young lives on the road by exchanging information and sharing good practices, providing a platform for long-term targeted impact through a list of exceptional players in the road safety and accident prevention field from Europe, Asia and Latin America. The project will foster improvements in awareness raising with focus on the most vulnerable road users (youth, cyclists, children, etc.) and will build better methodology through cross-fertilizing intercontinental experience.
