will present a project of a 10 year Strategic Plan for Rider Road Safety inspired in the initiatives being taken by FIM in support of the Decade of Action for Global Road Safety www.un.org/en/roadsafety decreed by the United Nations and the World Health Organization.

IT´S TIME TO ACT; F.I.M. Latin America, F.E.M. and AEMoto will present a project of a 10 year Strategic Plan for Motorcycle Rider Road Safety.
This ten-year strategic plan to spread motorcycle road safety throughout the region follows the spirit of the Decade of Action for Global Road Safety.

Many other organizations worldwide, are implementing actions to tackle and reduce traffic accidents, and are following the lead of the F.I.M. International Motorcycling Federation.
In Latin America, we have an extensive motorcycling community, that will be united by this Plan for Motorcycle Safety, and as world citizens, will include Green economy philosophy, always following the Ride Green motto.

At the beginning of 10 years of action to save thousands of lives that are lost due to traffic accidents, F.E.M. and AEMoto and are working to get the essential support of official and civil organizations in order to spread road safety actions in Ecuador. Hundreds of letter have been sent and will be, to Institutions and Companies in Ecuador and other countries, to present this Motorcycle Safety Plan called PLAN NACIONAL CIUDADANO POR LA SEGURIDAD MOTOCICLISTA to the community.

The first step was taken with the distribution of a flyer with the 10 key recommendations for safe motorcycle operation sponsored by Insurance company Seguros del Pichincha. This has been done in social events and the press. The second step will be taken in November 2011, with the publication of a Motorcycle Rider Education Supplement with one of the major editorial groups in Ecuador, the Vistazo magazine, with the circulation of 70.000 copies that will circulate with the national magazines Vistazo, Estadio and Generación XXI.

This is the start of a 10 year campaign, with a pilot programme in Ecuador for 2011 and 2012. After an evaluation, the Motorcycle Safety Citizens Plan will be spread throughout the region, with the support of Latin America´s Motorcycling community and FIM latin America.

We support the 'Safer Roads @ Rio+20', an initiative led by the Make Roads Safe campaign, building on the momentum of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety to broaden the coalition supporting action to prevent 5 million road deaths by 2020. We are seeking recognition that tackling the global road injury epidemic must be a key element of any post-2015 sustainable development framework. Road Safety is an environmental issue that has to be part of the Millennium Development objective since decrease of traffic accidents is a vital part of improvement of environment and quality of life.

We request that the Rio +20 conference on sustainable development would also include Motorcycle Road Safety plans as part of agenda so that the decisions taken would give a impulse to the movement for Road Safety.

Now, in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, June 2012, we request that the Rio +20 conference on sustainable development would also include this Motorcycle Road Safety plan as part of the agenda so that the decisions taken would give funding directed to global Motorcycle Road Safety, specifically to edit study of motorcycling in Latin America, invaluable tool to best develop this Plan.

Together we can save millions of lives.

Yours Ricardo Rocco Paz
