World Remembrance Day 
November 19th 5pm
The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR) is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year- to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected. The special Remembrance Day is therefore intended to respond to the great need of road crash victims for public recognition of their loss and suffering. It has also become an important tool for governments and those who work to prevent crashes or respond to the aftermath since it offers the opportunity to demonstrate the enormous scale and impact of road deaths and injuries and the urgent need for action.
