Intervention in the first Ibero-American and Caribbean road safety February 23, 2009. Madrid. Spain. We have to recognize that historically the Brasilia Congress in 1998, has been the starting point in the fight for the preservation of life on public roads in low- and middle-income countries of the new world, with the implementation of the peace campaign in the traffic. The magic of the success of this initiative was without doubt, strong political will and the participation of society committed to measures implemented by the Government.Since then, these two conditions are the common denominator in all the conclusions of successive congresses in the world.In 2004 he puts in circulation, a document with the name of global report on the prevention of the trauma caused by transit, in which patterns are drawn to mitigate the calamities caused by road violence, its causes and effects.This report by the Pan American Organization of the Health, the World Health Organization, the World Bank and other non-governmental organizations represents the desired model in the elaboration and implementation of public policies in the region to achieve the goals within a prudent time as a new challenge, on the basis of statistical data and identification of the risk factors of the insured in transit, reaching the conclusion that is a fact avoidable.Years later, Costa Rica was a scene created (in 2006) with the call to the first Forum of actors in road safety in Latin America and the Caribbean, where personalities like the President’s host Dr. Oscar Arias Sanchez, Nobel Peace Prize and his Majesty Prince Michael de Kent are calling on Governments to build safe roads for the respect for lifethrough the Declaration of San Jose and the creation of the transitional Commission for road safety, the latter to give continuity to this initiative.On the other hand, the MERCOSUR has written two well-known, very important reports on security Vial, the first in 2005 and the second in 2007.
