The UN General Assembly and its Member States adopted a resolution on "Improving global road safety". The resolution, which was tabled by the Government of the Russian Federation, was co-sponsored by 55 governments.

Thanks to the effort of the USA's Federal Highways Administration, PIARC's online Road Safety Manual was acknowledged as an important international effort in UN resolution A/70/L.44.

PIARC developed its Road Safety Manual to help countries at every stage of infrastructure development to fulfill road safety objectives. It is aligned with key pillars of the UN decade of action.

The World Road Association (PIARC) has recently established Technical Committees to update and promote the use of its online manual.
