The Urgent Need to Make Roads Safer for All

This past weekend, in cities around the world, events were held to remember the millions of people who have lost their lives or been seriously injured in road traffic accidents. Since 2005, when it was adopted by the United Nations, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims has been observed on the third Sunday of November as a commemoration and a call to action to make roads safer for all who use them.
