Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety
The NGOs are a key part of the road safety equation, as they make road safety an issue that is personal, real, and in need of urgent attention. They are instrumental in generating a demand from the public for safer roads, and when they base their interventions on evidence about what works, they can contribute in significant ways to saving lives on the roads.

Youth for Road Safety (YOURS)
Young people have a right to be adequately informed, consulted and empowered on road safety. YOURS believes that youth themselves have a vital role to help save lives on the world’s roads. After all, this is the biggest threat to their lives. Young people can do so much to contribute.
