World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

On this World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, 20 November 2016 we mark the occasion by honouring the more than 1.2 million people killed on our road's every year, and the many millions more who are injured. 
 
As the World Health Organization have advocated for nearly two decades and Kids Non-Profit Organization for two years, there are solutions to this human-made calamity.  
 
Countries must accelerate action to improve laws and enforcement on risks like speeding; redesign roads with protective infrastructure such as sidewalks; and ensure that vehicles everywhere are equipped with life-saving technologies.  
 
This year's World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims highlights the fact that even after a road traffic crash occurs, there is an enormous opportunity to save lives and reduce disability.
