World Marks 20th World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

This year, the day was marked as the 20/10 World Day of Remembrance -- 20 years since road victim organizations under the umbrella of the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims observed it and 10 years since the UN adoption.

Organizations around the world, including the U.S. Department of Transportation, on Nov. 15 marked the 20th World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, an occasion always commemorated on the third Sunday of November. Started by road victims in 1993 and adopted by the United Nations on Oct. 26, 2005, it is dedicated to remembering the millions of people killed and injured in road crashes, as well as their families and communities.

It is also a day to thank emergency responders around the world who aid traffic accident victims.

DOT notes that traffic fatalities on America's roads have generally declined in recent years, except for a noticeable spike in deaths among bicyclists and pedestrians. This year, DOT chose to focus its attention on crash victims who were walking or biking.
