Good Practice Manuals

The UN Road Safety Collaboration has strongly supported the development of a series of good practice manuals which address the recommendations of the World Report on Road Traffic Injury Prevention (2004).

Six manuals have been produced to date:

Pedestrian safety: a road safety manual for decision-makers and practitioners (2013)

Each year, more than 270 000 pedestrians lose their lives on the world’s roads. Many leave their homes as they would on any given day never to return. Globally, pedestrians constitute 22% of all road traffic fatalities.
