About Foundation Partnership for Road Safety
 

The Partnership for Road Safety is Georgia’s leading road safety organisation and strives to make Georgia’s roads safe for all road users and to drastically reduce Georgia’s high number of road casualties and injuries. Its’ mission is to mobilize the joint efforts of the state, private and NGO sectors in order to reduce traffic accidents,  to advocate and inform society and the media about road safety issues of importance and  to promote road safety culture and support youth road safety education. The Partnership shares internationally recognized successful best practice and experience in the field of road safety and to involve Georgian road safety in the global road safety movement and cross border cooperation. Since 2006 many high-profile projects have been carried out. One of its most successful projects was the two- three year project Increasing the Seat Belt Use in Georgia and Youth Road Safety Education projects, which was started in 2007 and was funded by USAID, BP, the FIA Foundation for Automobile and Society and Toyota Caucasus. In 2010, through building effective coalitions between public and private actors, the project contributed to establishing legislation that makes the use of seat belts mandatory in the front seat of all vehicles in Georgia. These efforts have contributed to a measurable reduction in road fatalities and an increase of nearly 95% increase in the use of seat belts and other protections. Throughout many projects, the organization has built a network of supporting government, NGOs, media and private sector organizations as well as high-profile individuals.
