Local Maryland Community Event to Mark
UN Global Road Safety Week
“Streets for Life,” Sunday, May 23, 2:00 pm
During Global Road Safety Week, May 17-23, countries the world over will call attention to the high number of deaths and injuries on the world’s roads and highlight actions and initiatives that can dramatically reduce these senseless tragedies.
As part of UN Global Road Safety Week, ASIRT will hold a local event in Potomac, Maryland, on Sunday, May 23 at 2:00pm. Community members will join together at the corner of Seven Locks Road and Gainsborough Road to call attention to this dangerous intersection and advocate for life-saving improvements. This intersection is one of 12 dangerous intersections in Montgomery County, Maryland where simultaneous events will take place.
By participating in UN Global Road Safety Week, we are working together to garner political commitments at national and local levels and to generate support for lower speed measures to create safe, healthy, green and livable cities. We are bringing a united message to demand “streets for life.”
