The event has a long history. From 1995, road victim organisations under the umbrella of the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims (FEVR) observed this Day together – first as the European Day of Remembrance, but soon as World Day when NGOs from Africa, South America and Asia, who were associated members of FEVR, joined.
10 years later – on 26th October 2005 – the World Day was adopted by the UN General Assembly as “the appropriate acknowledgement for victims of road traffic crashes and their families”.
This year, as in previous years, events are being held across the world to remember people killed on our roads.
Watch the official video – ‘Roads have Stories’ – below.
One by one the lives are lost,
