World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

16 November 2013

This year World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims  is celebrated by a record number of countries with a unified message.

FEVR and the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety have developed a single communication package shared by organizations in more than 35 countries.

The increasing adherance to this international event signals the importance of a participatory approach to tackling road trauma and death around the world, and gives full meaning to the concept of 'From global remembrance to global action' during the 2011-2020 Decade.
