World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
Every year, the third Sunday of November is the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
The next World Day is on Sunday 20 November 2016
This day 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.
World Day of Remembrance events and services take place throughout the UK. Find out
more about the types of activities taking place or how to organise your own activity.
