Road deaths are not normal deaths. They are sudden and unnatural and families rarely have a chance to say goodbye.
RoadPeace understands the importance of remembering family and friends who have died and we encourage remembrance in a number of different ways.
- Internet memorials
- Roadside memorials
- RoadPeace Wood
- World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
- August - National Road Victims month
"Public remembrance is not for the benefit of victims to remember what happened to them. Victims remember well what hapened to them. Public relfection is the act of recognition. It states to the victims and their families that their humanity is valued, that their loss is our loss and that their suffering is shared. "
