    • Problem Statement Road Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death among young people, aged 15-24 years old. Every year, road traffic crashes kill more than 400.000 young people and injure millions more. Introduction to the GlobalApril 2009 Youth NGO for Road 10
    • Problem StatementIn 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 NGOs 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.
