USA Manhattan, New York, 15th November 2015

Gathering – Anniversary – Walk & Ride for Road Safety –  

World Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Traffic Violence” 

Worldwide, traffic deaths are an epidemic, killing more than 1.24 million people a year. For the poorest Americans, the likelihood of being killed in a traffic crash is actually increasing.*

These statistics are not accidents, but the result of fixable problems. On November 15th, with people from around the world, we will walk to remember the victims of traffic violence — and agree to eliminate the word “accident” from our vocabularies.


As a group, we will walk from City Hall to the United Nations. We will wear yellow to show our hope for Vision Zero. Please say you’ll be there.

When we demand safe streets and refuse to excuse traffic crashes as “accidents,” we are part of a global movement for Vision Zero. On November 15, that global movement unites in protest and memory. I hope you’ll join us.

Paul Steely White
Executive Director

*Research recently published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that for people 25 and older with less than a high school diploma, fatality rates are significantly higher than more educated Americans, and these rates have been on the rise since 1990. Researchers note that pedestrian fatality rates are more than double in low-income communities.
