SDG 4: Quality Education and Road Safety


In the Policy Brief, developed and launched by YOURS (Global Youth Coalition for Road Safety), the Brief explains how the rights of young people to equal and quality education are often hindered by the lack of safety, security, and inclusivity available in the physical school environment. The Brief presents key data that reveal how the road traffic injuries and fatalities of young people are linked to their journey to and from school. It furthers that many children and youth are vulnerable to injury on their way to school without adequate protection from safe infrastructure, legislation, policies, or safe items such as quality helmets for children traveling by bike or motorcycle and quality car seats and seat belts for children traveling by car or bus.

SDG 5 Policy Brief: Gender Equality and Road Safety


In this Policy Brief developed and launched by YOURS (Global Youth Coalition for Road Safety), the policy brief talks about the lack of gender-responsive planning and implementation around mobility systems that prevent gender-based violence. The Brief seeks to highlight how the lack of road safety and safe mobility is also a gender issue that requires gender-responsive and transformative planning to protect and ensure equal access to all genders. It highlights the realities girls and women face while navigating through transport systems not built for them. The data reveal how disproportionately affected women are, not just in access to mobility but in how they are affected if they are ever involved in a road crash.
