Manhattan, NY – On Sunday, November 15th New Yorkers united for a rally at City Hall Park in remembrance of those who have tragically died in road traffic incidents.
Following the rally many of those in attendance participated in the United Nations World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims Walk.
“The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR) is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year – to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected.
…Road deaths and injuries are sudden, violent, traumatic events. Their impact is long-lasting, often permanent. Each year, millions of newly injured and bereaved people from every corner of the world are added to the countless millions who already suffer. The cumulative toll is truly tremendous.
The grief and distress experienced by this huge number of people is all the greater because many of the victims are young, because many of the crashes could and should have been prevented…”
