Women and Road Safety #IWD2022

Road safety is a target of SDG 3 – Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. As we move forward in the 2020-2030 Decade of Action for Road Safety, what are we doing to halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents? What needs to be done over the next eight years in order to reach that target?

Starting on March 8th, International Women’s Day, through March 9th, this event will fit into to the theme of the 2022 ITF Summit – Transport for Inclusive Societies, and in particular to the Ministerial Roundtable on 19th May “Meeting the road safety challenge: Halving the deaths and injuries by 2030”. It will also aim to provide input to the UN High-Level Meeting on Road Safety in New York at the end of June.

9 March | 15:15-16:15 (GMT +1:00)| Session 2: Deep Dive on Product Development: Crash Test Dummies
Safety equipment in vehicles, such as headrests, seatbelts, and airbags, have been traditionally designed based on a male crash test dummy. This has serious implications and this session will look at different measures to address these, including female crash test dummies and how to bridge data gaps.
