WTISD 2013 Call for Action


WTISD 2013 Call for Action: Worldwide Initiatives

On the occasion of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day 2013, ITU calls upon all stakeholders (policy makers, regulators, operators and industry) to take practical steps to further national and domestic policies, programmes and/or educational initiatives in the use of ICTs to improve road safety, taking into account the risks associated with the unreasonable use of ICTs and driver distraction, as well as the benefits of ICTs and vehicular safety technologies, in order to improve global road safety.
 
We invite you to consider organizing programmes in your country to mark WTISD 2013 with a focus on the theme: “ICTs and improving road safety”. It would be useful to involve all sections of society to formulate awareness and consensus on the issues underlying the theme.
