The National Programme for Road Safety for the period 2012-2021 was launched on 11 May 2011, coinciding with the start of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety.
The Strategy outlines the vision and objective for road safety over the next decade and sets as its priority the carrying out of further measures to improve road safety. The programme’s priority objective is to reduce the most severe consequences of road accidents – with a targeted reduction of 50% in fatalities and 50% in severe injuries. The strategy also includes a the goal to increase seatbelt use up to 98% by 2021.
To attain this objective, the Programme aims to implement measures effectively and to generate political will and social support.
