21 November: World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims


  • The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is observed every year on third Sunday in the month of November to remember those killed and injured on the roads, together with their families, friends, and others affected.
  • The theme of the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims 2021 puts the spotlight on the reduction of traffic speeds – low speeds, which have the potential to prevent many deaths and serious injuries, in particular those of pedestrians and all other vulnerable road users – children, elderly and the disabled.
