The United Nations Decade of Road Safety

The U.N. has named 2010-2020 as the Decade of Road Safety.  What most people don’t know is that Canada actually had a 10 year plan too.  I was called the Road Safety Vision and it took place from 2000-2010.

The goal was to cut Motor Vehicle Collisions Involving Impaired Driving from 34% to 17%.

The Insurance Bureau of Canada currently puts that number around 40% (depending on where you look – it goes provincially, so I averaged it and then still went low).

Is it any wonder that we couldn’t adhere to the Kyoto accord when we can’t even adhere to our own goals?
