World Day Of Remembrance (WDR) For Road Traffic Victims is observed every third Sunday in November. This years' event will be commemorated on 15th November, 2015. The remembrace of this day aims to highlight the devastation caused by road crashes, give the much needed recognition to the loss and suffering of the bereaved and injured and to thank all those who assist victims in the aftermath of a crush.
The WDR offers an annual opportunity to increase public awareness of the burden of road traffic crashes on individuals, families, communities and nations and to emphasize the need to initiate and promote efforts to control this major public health, social and development problem, and to assist victims of road traffic crashes including their families. As we commemorate this day, the World Health Organization has rereased the "Gloobal Status Report on Road Safety 2015" that found 1.25 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes. Kenya accounts for 12,891 of those deaths. The report recommends implementation of strong road safety laws to reduce this staggering statistic.
