For Immediate Release;

 

Sunday, November 20th 2016

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims takes place on the third Sunday in November every year as the appropriate acknowledgment of victims of road traffic crashes and their families. It was started by the British road crash victim charity, RoadPeace, in 1993 and was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005.

 

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.  

People Against Distracted Driving is  just one of the many non-profits around the world that work to end death and injury caused by road crashes. The following lives were lost in a road crash, caused either by distracted driving, drunk driving, drowsy driving or drugged driving. The deadly D's of driving are all preventable. Please, read about these lives who were taken too soon and decide today, World Day of Remembrance For Road Crash Victims to drive responsibly. By your decision to drive safe, you honor each of these victims, their families and their passion to never let a road crash take your loved one.
