The Ministry of Health aims to halve, by 2020, the number of deaths from traffic accidents. In 2010, 42,844 people died on the roads and streets of the country. Among hospitalizations caused by traffic, the main victims were motorcyclists, followed by pedestrians. The Health Minister Alexandre Padilha, attended the signing of the National Pact to Reduce Accidents (Stop A Covenant for Life), on Friday (21) in Brasilia with President Dilma Rousseff and Minister of Cities, Aguinaldo Ribeiro .

The initiative is part of the shares of National Traffic Week, whose theme is Do not exceed the speed. Preserve the Life and intends to reduce the number of deaths on the roads and streets of Brazil. Besides the authorities, personalities were present like Emerson Fittipaldi and Cissa Guimarães.

The National Pact to Reduce Accidents provides a number of preventive measures to combat violence transit. The main measure is permanent awareness campaigns, which were previously seasonal. Our purpose is to seal the government's commitment to peace in transit. We can only appreciate one of the most important things: life. Increasingly we have become a nation of the middle class, with new transport alternatives, which requires greater responsibility, said President Dilma Rousseff.
