ITMA's mission to reduce harm from traffic crashes grows more and more important as already well over one million people are killed on the world's roads each year. That number keeps increasing as the number of vehicles is increasing, causing yet more deaths and injuries from traffic crashes. ITMA provides a forum for researchers and practitioners from around the world to share experiences and knowledge enabling them to return to their countries with ideas they have acquired from each other. This allows them to hasten the process of decreasing human suffering from injuries and deaths in traffic in their own countries.
2nd UN Global Road Safety Week (May, 6-12, 2013)
Luchemos por la Vida’s activities in Argentina - Complementary report
Luchemos por la Vida carried out different activities during the 2nd UN Global Road Safety Week, aimed at promoting pedestrians' safety. One of the most important was to invite the community to be part of a mobilization for this cause by creating a national network for pedestrians’ life. This initiative enabled us to get some partners in different cities of the Interior of Argentina such as "Vecinos Autoconvocados por la Autopista 8" -whose local members went into action in: San Antonio de Areco, Capilla del Señor, Pilar, Arrecifes, Parada Robles (Province of Buenos Aires)-; teachers and schools from Rada Tilly (Chubut), Necochea (Province of Buenos Aires), Concordia and Federación (Entre Ríos), “Concientizar para Prevenir” in Carlos Paz (Córdoba), among others.
