Around the world, people are getting ready for the 6th UN Global Road Safety Week. Today we are featuring some of the amazing work done by iRAP and its partners to #Love30 and eliminate high-risk streets.
The charity, International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP), is working with its partners in over 100 countries to eliminate high-risk streets and #Love30 this UN Global Road Safety Week. They work with governments, road agencies, mobility clubs, development banks, research organisations and road safety NGOs to provide the knowledge, tools and training to make their road infrastructure safer – 3-star or better.
