Road Safety Kyrgyzstan – Road Safety Projects
In a country with over 10,000 NGOs, Public Association Road Safety (PARS) – is the first and only one dedicated solely to road safety. Established in 2012 with a grant from the UK charity EASST, it has implemented 15 major projects ranging from public education to children’s programmes. It retains a high profile with many successes confirming its notable public acceptance.
Of major significance is The ‘Pedestrian Safety in Bishkek’s Smart City Concept’ where it has been effective in influencing the development of the Government’s Smart City Strategy to include better provision for vulnerable road users in the Kyrgyzstan capital.
