World Day of remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

21 November 2010

Every year, the third Sunday of November is the ' World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims'. This day in particular focuses on both the overall scale and the individual devastation caused by road deaths and injuries and the impact upon families and communities around the world.

Almost 4,000 people are killed and many hundreds of thousands injured on roads throughout the world every day. Many more have to cope with bereavement or the effects of injury and thus become part of the huge group of people affected by road carnage.

Many organisations across the World, including RoadPeace, organise acts of remembrance on this day.
