The FIA is the governing body of world motor sport and the federation of the world’s leading motoring organisations. It brings together more than 230 member clubs in over 140 countries, representing nearly 80 millions of motorists and their families.
The FIA has launched a new online pledge aimed at promoting road safety and committing drivers to obey the rules of the road, as part of the FIA Action for Road Safety campaign. The pledge is available at www.fia.com/pledge.
Everyone is invited to sign the pledge to show their support to the FIA’s 10 Golden Rules for safer motoring. The FIA’s Golden Rules are a set of tips intended to help motorists improve their driving behaviour and remind them of their responsibilities to themselves, their passengers and all other road users.
The FIA road safety pledge has already received the support of numerous champions.
The World Series by Renault have been supporting the FIA Action for Road Safety campaign since 2015.
Every year road crashes kill 1.3 million and injure 50 million more. They are the number one killer of 15-29 year olds. Every day 3,000 people die on the world’s roads, including 500 children.
Jean Todt, President of the FIA and Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General for Road Safety, was the first to sign the road safety pledge. He said : “Road safety is a top priority for the FIA. We’re calling on all road users to be responsible and to obey the rules on the road. By taking our pledge, you are making a personal commitment to improving road safety, one of today’s leading challenges. We all have a role to play and together we can all save lives.”
