World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR)

WDR Social Media Hashtag: #WDR2016

This special World Day of Remembrance is the San Francisco Bay Area Families for Safe Streets Call to Action. Join us!

As a member of the SFBA Families for Safe Streets, you can help prevent crashes and respond to victims and family members in the aftermath of a traffic crash.

On Sunday, November 20 — meet up in San Francisco at the 16th Street BART Station at 3:30 p.m. for a memorial and vigil walk to the steps of City Hall (or, you can meet us at City Hall at 5 p.m.) to call for direct action from legislators to end traffic violence.

Stand with SFBA Families for Safe Streets to demand California cities adopt safety cameras — a solution proven to drastically change the culture of speeding.

Safety cameras are easy to implement and one of the quickest, most effective ways to reduce the carnage on dangerous streets.

Today, safety cameras illegal in California – yet in Washington, D.C. they have reduced traffic deaths by 70%. In Seattle, safety cameras have been so effective in slowing traffic, tickets for speeding violations have dropped 64%.

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is commemorated on the third Sunday of each November – to remember the millions killed and injured on our roads, together with their families, friends and others who are also affected.

It is also a day on which we thank the emergency services and medical teams and reflect on the tremendous burden and cost of this public health crisis to families, communities, and on ways we can put an end to these tragedies.

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 and because governments’ and society’s response to road death and injury and to bereaved and injured victims is often inadequate, unsympathetic, and inappropriate to a loss of life or quality of life.

Road deaths and injuries are sudden, violent, traumatic events — but they are NO accident. Most are predictable and preventable.

Walk SF is the only nonprofit organization making it safe for everyone to walk in San Francisco, so our community is healthier and more livable. We reclaim streets as shared, pubic space everyone can safely enjoy.

Walk SF held the first World Day of Remembrance in San Francisco in 2015 to honor the memories, lives and surviving loved ones of those affected by traffic violence. The event includes a walk, press conference and vigil by family members and survivors of traffic crashes in the Bay Area.
