Safer City Streets Network: 2nd Meeting

ITF Meeting ITF Meeting

The ITF Safer City Streets initiative offers a platform for road safety experts to share their experience and build a global dataset at city-level. The first meeting attracted 28 cities and 20 other organisations at the OECD in Paris. With the support of the POLIS network and the VIAS institute, the ITF organises this second meeting in Brussels on 7-8 December.

The meeting will review the recent key developments in relation to urban road safety. Parts of the agenda will be dedicated to cycling safety, risk indicators, mobility statistics, crash data systems, health data sources and road safety policies.

The Safer City Streets initiative was launched in October 2016 at the UN Habitat III Conference. Thanks to the support of the FIA Road Safety Grant programme, as well as the support from the International Traffic Safety Data and Analysis Group (IRTAD), it has grown rapidly to include 44 cities and offer a global database for road safety performance.
