The National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims in Canada is a day set aside to remember those killed or seriously injured on Canadian roads, often in avoidable collisions, and those left to deal with the sudden and unexpected loss of people they love.
This year's theme is "Raising awareness of the number of deaths on Canadian roads."
The good news is that we can save lives. In 2008, one life was saved every day because Canada is:
- Increasing enforcement
- Introducing new policies
- Building safer vehicles
- Changing road user behaviours
- Improving our roads
But, even though the number of deaths on our roads is going down, there is still a great deal of work to do.
November 18 is your opportunity to remember the victims, and to express your support.
Come back soon for more information on events and tools to help you observe the day in your region!
