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 and the many others also affected. This Sunday 15 November, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the World Day being observed internationally and the 10th anniversary since its recognition by the United Nations.
Professor Herman De Croo, Belgian Minister of State and president of ETSC said:
“Today we remember those that have died and those that have been left behind as a consequence of road collisions. But we must never forget that for every person killed, ten more suffer life-changing injuries. We must ensure that decision makers in Europe and around the world act to reduce road injury as well as deaths. Action on setting targets and reducing speed, drink driving and distraction as well as better enforcement of seat belt laws can all play a role in reducing the numbers of people killed and seriously injured on our roads.”
