IRF Committee on Road Safety

IRF supports the goals of the UN Decade of Action. Every day, our member organizations affect real change by designing solutions – from low-cost road markings to speed enforcement cameras – that help to protect people from death or injuries. We assist them by showcasing cost-effective programs, sharing good practices with decision-makers and training front-line personnel on diagnosing and addressing engineering weaknesses.

In order to combat the growing epidemic of road fatalities and injuries on roads around the world, IRF Members have organized as a Committee to address road safety needs around the world.

The goals of the Committee are to:

  • Garner road safety expertise, including best practices and newest technologies, through technology transfer from the international community, in order to prepare and support road safety programs, policy statements and positions;
  • Educate government agencies (i.e. transportation, health, etc.), road authorities, consulting organizations and other associations on the use of new design methods, proven technologies and cost-effective practices;
  • Influence key decision-makers to implement successful road safety strategies/programs, as well as support road safety research;
  • Identify focus areas where significant improvements in road safety and mobility can be achieved; and
  • Encourage a better understanding of the safe interaction between key elements of the road system: the driver, the vehicle and the road infrastructure
  • Members of the IRF Committee on Road Safety will be able to effect real change in the world. This is a great opportunity to have an attentive audience of key decision-makers who will hear the voice of the industry and listen to your counsel.
