World day of Remembrance

20 November 2011

 The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (20 Nov) is the day on which all those killed and injured in road crashes are remembered, together with their families, the emergency services and all others affected or involved in the aftermath.

Observed for ten years from 1993 by victim organisations under the umbrella of the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims, FEVR, this Remembrance Day has become a very important day for bereaved and injured victims and all those supporting them. Gradually it has also come to be seen by many others as an important day on which to highlight the huge scale of road death and injury, its impact and cost, and as an opportunity for taking action.

Among the many ceremonies and events held across the world, RoadPeace coordinated , 25 church services will be held nationwide in UK. There is also a Lecture at the University of Bristol entitled: ‘What harms us most’ and a ‘Sing for Safety’ event at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, both on 17th November.
