Save Lives #SlowDown



Luchemos por la Vida has officially launched the 4th UN Global Road Safety Week with a walk by downtown Buenos Aires City, workshops in schools and dissemination of proposals of legislation to reduce circulation speeds in Argentina and deter reckless driving due to speeding.



The walk, with a banner display with the topic “Disminuir la Velocidad Salva Vidas” (Save Lives, Slow Down) and distribution of explanatory brochures, begun today at the iconic corner of Corrientes and Cerrito Avenues, right next to the Obelisco, and then continued by Roque Sáenz Peña Ave., ending in De Mayo Avenue, next to the Casa Rosada, seat of the National Government.



Pedestrians showed interest when receiving the brochures about speed and several local and national media echoed the initiative.

The activities will continue on the following days.
