For more info visit www.newsinfusion**** Washington, DC) Five million lives could be saved and 50 million serious injuries prevented over the next ten years, according to a report presented to Members of Congress today by international road safety experts. But to do so, world leaders must launch a ‘Decade of Action’ to combat the growing global road death crisis. Actress and Make Roads Safe Campaign ambassador Michelle Yeoh, urged Members of Congress to join efforts to combat the world’s fastest-growing and most neglected public health emergency. Yeoh, best known for her roles in the Hollywood hits Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Tomorrow Never Dies, and Memoirs of a Geisha, urged the US government to play a leading role at next month’s first-ever UN Ministerial Conference on Road Safety in Moscow. “The US has made progress on road safety, but of course much more needs to be done,” Yeoh said. “The United States can be a world leader on road safety, to save lives both at home and abroad in a Decade of Action.” “Having traveled to Africa, Asia, and Latin America to see the world’s dangerous roads,” Yeoh added, "I am known for my action movies and doing my own stunts, but some of my most frightening moments have been crossing a dangerous road with children who are just trying to get to school. We must act now to save our children."
