May 4 to 10 marks the third UN Global Road Safety Week. This year, the UN’s goal is to highlight safe driving practices that protect the most vulnerable users on our roads – our children. Governments, international agencies, civil society organizations and private companies from around the world will host hundreds of events both on and off-line to raise awareness on road safety.
Through our international partnership with the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the Canadian Automobile Association is a proud supporter of the UN’s Global Road Safety Week. CAA is taking to Twitter and asking questions to spark a conversation on road safety and on how we can ensure safer communities for our children.
