ROAD SAFETY INSTITUTE (R.S.I.) “PANOS MYLONAS” IN PARLIAMENT FOR CITIZEN SAFETY

The President of Road Safety Institute (R.S.I.) “Panos Mylonas” Mrs. Vasiliki Danelli-Mylona made an in-detail presentation of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030, representing the Institute at this year’s first meeting of the Permanent Special Committee on Road Safety of the Hellenic Parliament.

The Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 has been developed by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Regional Commissions, in cooperation with the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC) and other interested parties, aiming at reducing road traffic injuries and fatalities by 50% until 2030.

R.S.I. “Panos Mylonas” is a UN Consultant for Road Safety and, as a UNRSC Member, has active participation in the committees’ meetings for the development of the action plan and its implementation on a national and global level.

The Global Plan provides guidelines for eliminating road traffic fatalities (Vision Zero) through adopting the Safe System Approach and calls governments to implement their own National Strategic Plans, based on Sweden’s Vision Zero strategy which has the long-term vision of achieving zero serious and fatal injuries in the transport system.

Mrs. Danelli-Mylona, after having gone through the 5 Pillars of action for achieving the Global Plan goals -involving building road safety management capacity, improving the safety of road infrastructure and broader transport networks, further developing the safety of vehicles, enhancing the behaviour of road users, and improving post-crash response- presented good practices and programmes implemented by R.S.I., as well as the tools used towards this direction.

The presentation of the Global Plan was concluded with the analysis of the role of each participating party and by pointing out the 8 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) according to the European Commission, within the framework of the strategic planning for road safety decade 2020-2030, for the evaluation of the national policies on: speed compliance, seatbelt and helmet wearing rate, protective Systems, alcohol, distraction, vehicle safety, infrastructure, and post-crash care.

The President of the Committee, Mr. Christos Kellas, in addition to praising the important work of the Institute, highlighted measures adopted by the Government following proposals of the Committee. He also pointed out the reduction of road traffic fatalities and serious injuries during the past decade, noting that this is not enough:
“…it’s not about ‘soulless’ statistics but about lives and families! Every life is priceless! Besides, although our country was ranked first in reducing fatalities within a decade, we still are above the european average per million inhabitants.”

R.S.I. President Mrs. Danelli-Mylona has stated:
“Everyone has a role to play in achieving the goal of zero fatalities (Vision Zero), the public and private sector, the Government, corporations, the academic community, and civil society. We now have the knowledge, the tools, and the responsibility to work together…For a world without road traffic incidents!”
The Institute also participates with its proposals in the public conference for the development of the National Strategic Plan for Road Safety 2021-2030 by the Ministry of Infrastruction and Transport.
