     During this Global Week, in line with the initiative by the United Nations to reduce traffic deaths globally, Luchemos por la Vida has presented a new proposal of legislation to the authorities of the National Road Safety Agency (ANSV), national lawmakers, to the authorities of the City of Buenos Aires and its lawmakers, authorities and lawmakers from the Province of Buenos Aires (the most populated and with the greatest number of vehicles in the country), and from the provinces of Córdoba and Mendoza. The objective of this proposal is to reduce maximum driving speeds in 10km, in highways, ringways, routes, avenues and streets, apart from other proposals for the improvement of controller mechanisms and the introduction of changes in public spaces for the development of safe areas for the most vulnerable in traffic.

     Likewise, we requested once again the consideration of the Law of Crimes against Road Safety, presented before lawmakers in 2009 and 2013, which was never considered. 

The initiative was disseminated on the main mass media
