Every third Sunday in November, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDoR) is held to honor those who have lost their lives or been impacted by roadway crashes. This year the event will be held on Sunday, November 19, 2023, and communities across the globe will gather to honor their loved ones, and advocate for actions to improve roadway safety.     

The objectives of WDoR 2023 are:

  • remember all people killed and seriously injured on the roads;
  • acknowledge the crucial work of the emergency services;
  • draw attention to the generally trivial legal response to culpable road deaths and injuries and advocate for an appropriately serious response;
  • advocate for better support for road traffic victims and victim families;
  • promote evidence-based actions to prevent and eventually stop further road traffic deaths and injuries

In the United States, 60 communities in nearly 35 states are leading activities. To learn more and how to get involved, visit the WDoR website, a collaborative project of the Vision Zero Network, Families for Safe Streets, It Could Be Me, and Road to Zero Coalition.
