Queensland and the plan for the 2nd UN Decade of Action on Road Safety: what is the plan and is it relevant to Queensland?
SPEAKER: Dr Judy Fleiter, Global Road Safety Partnership
The 1st Decade of Action on Road Safety finished last year, and although progress was made, the target was not achieved. The UN has just released its Plan for the 2nd Decade of Action on Road Safety, and there are some important differences. The plan is not a one-size-fits-all recipe for road safety, instead it presents a framework, and challenges us to develop plans that suit our own context. It also broadens how we look at road safety by emphasising the increasing availability of new modes of transport, the relationship between transport and land use planning, and the role of road safety in contributing to a sustainable society.
In this presentation, Dr Judy Fleiter of the Global Road Safety Partnership will outline the development of the plan and explain its main aspects. We will then hear from some Chapter members on their views about how the plan relates to Queensland across the range of road safety activities, before opening the seminar to general discussion. This is timely, as we move towards a post-COVID world with fatalities and injuries having increased far more than anticipated.
