World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims takes place on the third Sunday in November each year and acknowledges the suffering experienced by the millions of people whose lives have been impacted in accidents on the world’s roads.
In 2022, World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims falls on the 20th of November. World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims was first observed in 1993 by the British road crash victim charity, RoadPeace.
It was subsequently recognised by road victims’ organisations collectively represented by the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims (FEVR) in 1995.
In the years that followed, non-government organisations (NGOs) from continents around the globe chose to observe the day as well, and on the 26th of October 2005, it was formally recognised by the UN General Assembly.
To ensure effective promotion, organisation and management of activities in support of World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, a dedicated foundation was set up in August 2021 to coordinate efforts.
RoadPeace has produced a helpful guide for those wishing to commemorate the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims and organise activities around it.
