UN and the Yellow Jackets Link
On July 1st 2008, France began its road safety awareness campaign
The Delegation for Road Safety
The Directorate of Road Traffic Safety (DSCR) is a central administration directorate created in 1982 within the Ministry of Equipment.
It became the Delegation for Road Safety and Traffic in 2008 and was attached to the Ministry of the Interior in 2012. In 2017, the Delegation for Road Safety and Traffic (DSCR) changes its name to become the Road Safety Delegation (RSD).
This led to the introduction of the yellow jackets to be kept in vehicles.
The French Ministry of Interior (Ministère de l´Intérieur) is at the heart of the State’s action throughout the country.
The International department (Direction de la Coopération Internationale/DCI) an active department of the French Police was set up in 2010. It is the first joint department of Police and Gendarmerie, created by a merger of the Police International Technical Cooperation service (SCTIP, set up in 1961) and the Gendarmerie International Cooperation sub-directorate (SICD, set up in 1985). Reporting to the heads of the Police and the Gendarmerie, the DCI contributes to the application of the Ministry’s international strategy and the implementation of France’s foreign policy in the fields covered by the Ministry of the Interior. It leads and coordinates all the international technical cooperation of the Ministry of the Interior, except for issues that are covered by the intelligence services.
So we can see how the yellow jackets were introduced in 2008, and Ministry of Interior was attached to the RSD in 2012.
A UN Global Road Safety Trust Fund was established by United Nations Secretary-General, and was launched in New York on April 12, 2018.
