Please join Families for Safe Streets in commemorating World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. Together, as those who have been personally impacted by crashes, we will join with the Vision Zero Network and other street safety organizations, community members, faith leaders, elected officials, and dignitaries from across the country and globe to REMEMBER, SUPPORT, and ACT.
Each year, 1.35 million people are killed around the world in traffic crashes. Over 100 Americans are killed every single day and millions more are injured each year.
Together we can amplify the heartbreaking cost of traffic crashes and the urgent need for change.
Critical Key Fact: Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5-29 years.
