World Day of Remembrance

Sunday, 15th November, was World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims and many remembrance events were held around the country.

On 26 October 2005, the United Nations adopted a resolution which calls for governments to mark the third Sunday in November each year as World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. Observation of this day provides an opportunity to draw the public’s attention to road traffic crashes, their consequences and costs, and the measures which can be taken to prevent them. The day also provides an opportunity to remind governments and society of their responsibility to make roads safer. 

Activities taking place in Ireland to mark World Remembrance Day for Road Traffic Victims included remembrance services and ceremonies in cities and towns right across the country.
