steering wheel M ore young people aged between 15-29 die from road crashes than from HIV/AIDs, Malaria, Tuberculosis or homicide. This means that road crashes are a serious threat to youth no matter where they are. There are certain factors that put young people at particular risk, they are explained here.

What are the main risk factors?
There are several risk factors that contribute to road traffic injuries among youth. Below are the five key risk-factors, take a look at each of the following factors to understand more about the problem.

HELMETS, SPEEDING, DRINK-DRIVING, SEATBELTS, DISTRACTED-DRIVING

If you love somebody tell them to 'Buckle Up'

In November 2017, the United Nations agreed on a set of 12 targets that directly relate to the Sustainable Development Goals: SDG target 3.6 seeks to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries by 50% by 2020 and SDG target 11.2 aims to provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport by 2030. 

The set of 12 targets need indicators to ensure that progress is being made and that countries work towards implementing new initiatives, laws and changes to reduce road crahes.


Goals, Targets, More Targets and Indicators...What does it all mean?
In a nutshell, the current global efforts for road safety directly relate to the Sustainable Development Agenda 2015-2030 (which replaced the previous 15 years of goals, called the Millenium Development Goals), but also relate the Decade of Action 2011-2020. 

All of these goals and efforts simply point to one principle; to reduce road traffic crashes globally by helping countries to put in place practices that are evidence-based and proven to work. In many parts of the world, especially low and middle-income countries (where most of the crashes and deaths happen, there is a lack of iniatitives proven to reduce crashes.

The goals refer to the Global Goals (also known as the Sustainable Development Agenda). These goals cover every aspect of development to make the world more sustainable and better equipped to impove the lives of billions of people. There are 17 global goals covering all elements of human life on the planet.

The targets are all the individual targets needed to improve life under each goal. For example, in health (Goal 3) there is a focus on mental health, maternal health, tobaccos cessation and each  arenumbered individually. In total, there are 230 targets for the 17 goals. For the road safety field, target 3.6 refers directly to reducing road crashes by 50% by 2020. Taget 11.2 aims to provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport by 2030 under goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.

The 12 targets published by WHO focus on even further targets to help decision makers, campaigners, practitioners and pretty much all people working on road safety to be more specific on road safety action. The indicators take this even further to illustrate what needs to be seen (indicated) for targets to be successful.

Let us all make a diffeence in life, by starting with ourselves...

The best way will be to hold the steering as follows:

1) 10 O'clock & 2 O'clock

2) 9 O'clock & 3 O'clock

 

Just wanted to say that drinving with 2 hands on the wheel it the best and safest way for all concern. Be safe!
