6 8 May 2009, Brussels Introduction to the Global Youth NGO for Road Safety6 Problem Statement Road Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death among young people, aged years old. Every year, road traffic crashes kill more than young people and injure millions more.

7 8 May 2009, Brussels Introduction to the Global Youth NGO for Road Safety7 Problem Statement In order to change this situation, young people face several challenges: A lack of awareness and recognition in the world of the vulnerable position of young people in traffic. A lack of global coordination and collaboration among youth and youth-led NGO's and their road safety initiatives.Youth road safety initiatives remain small-scaled and scattered. A lack of one strong voice to advocate on the behalf of youth and road safety. A lack of resources for youth road safety programmes. A lack of a next generation of leaders who are passionate about road safety and involved in decision making within the road safety field. A lack of capacity building. Road safety knowledge and best practices from youth initiatives are not shared in a broader network. Besides this, programmes targeting youth and road safety are commonly not evidence-based.
