This is the third year of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. The Africa Region still has some of the highest rates of road traffic deaths globally and road traffic crashes are the fourth leading cause of death in persons 5 to 44 years. However, young people are not only victims of road crashes. In the 10 years of the Decade, some youths will have grown into leadership positions and will be able to influence policy decisions and implementation of technology. For these reasons we have decided to dedicate this, the 3rd Africa Road Safety Seminar, to the safety of children and youths in the urban environment of our African cities.

The Seminar is aimed at all road safety stakeholders in South Africa and other countries in the Africa Region, and all role players who may have an interest and role to play in the implementation of the UN Decade of Action objectives; including Government Departments, NGOs and Corporates.

The seminar is scheduled as follows:

Dates: Tuesday, 12 August 2014 & Wednesday, 13 August 2014

Time: 09h00–17h00 (both days)

Venue: Southern Sun Hotel (Cape Sun), Cape Town (South Africa)
