Road Safety in Russia
Our local road safety partner
We support road safety in Russia through our local partners, Road Safety Russia, an NGO working to unite the efforts of Russian ministries and departments, private companies, NGOs, vehicle owners and other stakeholders in order to decrease the number of casualties on Russian roads.
Since their establishment in 2007, Road Safety Russia have led numerous social campaigns on issues from drink driving to child car seats. In 2013, Road Safety Russia won a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for their Buckle Up campaign. The campaign, which focused largely on children’s road safety covered all of Russia’s 83 regions and saw a 50% increase in seat belt wearing rates.
Road Safety Russia are currently implementing a campaign aimed at reducing the number of crashes and fatalities caused by dangerous driving, particularly overtaking. Find out more about their campaign here.
