Decade of action

Heavy goods vehicles video

As part of the United Nations Decade of Action for road safety, 2011 - 2020 we produced the film HGVs A road users guide in partnership with the Police, Argos and Norbert Dentressangle.

The decade of action is an opportunity to make the communities and streets where we live safer. We can also contribute to the global effort to reduce the millions of people needlessly killed or injured on roads.

Each year nearly 1.3 million people die and millions more are injured worldwide as a result of a road traffic collision. The World Health Organisation predicts that road deaths are set to increase to 2.4 million per year. All of these deaths are preventable.

Now is the time to act! You can find out more on the Decade of action website.
