The International Child Road Safety Forum (FISEVI) 2018 was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina last week. The event attracted 400 road safety stakeholders from governments, international agencies, law enforcement, civil and traffic engineers, health and education workers and media, amongst others.
As a member of the Global Initiative for Children’s Health and Mobility, and aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) for global road safety, Fundación Gonzalo Rodriguez coordinated FISEVI 2018 as a crucial opportunity to generate dialogue and commitment to the 2020 SDG goals.
iRAP’s Regional Director – The Americas, Julio Urzua presented on the Star Ratings for Schools (SR4S) App in the Safe School Zones panel session. Julio explained how the SR4S app works, how data is collected, and provided real-life examples of work completed in Zambia and Uruguay. This included demonstrating how the introduction of safety fencing, speed reduction, raised crossings and removal of vehicles can improve the star ratings at a school crossing.
This session also included panel members from the FIA Foundation, InterAmerican Development Bank, SafeKids Worldwide, Zambia Road Safety Trust and Gonzalo Rodriguez Foundation – sharing knowledge, experiences and best practice for Safe School Zones.
