Bloomberg Philanthropies Global Road Safety Program Inviting Select Cities and Countries to Compete for Funding and Support

With a new commitment of $125 million over five years, the program will work at both the national level to strengthen road safety legislation and the city level implementing proven road safety interventions. The proposals cities submit will detail how they plan to address road safety by applying solutions to a number of challenges including improving pedestrian and cyclist safety, enhancing laws to combat drinking and driving and speeding as well as encouraging the use of motorcycle helmets, seat-belts and child restraints. Proposals will also detail how cities plan on improving road infrastructure and street design, provide safer mobility options for all road users and guarantee safer public modes of transportation.
