For years this Remembrance Day was mainly observed in Europe but as it is now listed as an international activity during the Global Decade of Action for Road Safety, celebrations are held on every continent, in particular in those fast developing countries that today bear the bulk of road deaths and injuries.

The 2014 Remembrance Day will be held on Sunday 16th November and its theme is“Speed Kills, Design Out Speeding”, and it relates to the call in Pillar 3 of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Safer Vehicles. The 3rd of 5 Pillars it calls for vehicles to have improved vehicle safety & crash avoidance technologies, high levels of occupant and vulnerable road user protection and for greater consumer information about safety performance of motor vehicles and minimum crash test standards.
