Through the Safer Roads Challenge, Together for Safer Roads is bringing together the private and public sectors to diagnose road safety challenges and deliver measurable solutions using combined expertise and resources.

The program helps community leaders:

  • Understand road safety root causes local to their area
  • Catalyze sustainable interventions that improve quality of life and safety for all road users
  • Tap into the private sector’s knowledge, data, technology, and global networks
  • Prioritize evidence-based mobility approaches that save lives
Be Driven to Take on the Safer Roads Challenge.
