World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims taking place this Sunday

Families of victims killed in traffic collisions will gather this Sunday for the second annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. The gathering and march, which takes place on the third Sunday in November each year, will begin at 3:30 p.m. at 16th Street Mission BART. The crowd will then march to City Hall.

“This special Remembrance Day is intended to respond to the great need of road crash victims for public recognition of their loss and suffering,” wrote Walk San Francisco Executive Director Nicole Ferrara, in a press release about the event. “It has also become an important tool for governments and those who work to prevent crashes or respond to the aftermath, as it offers the opportunity to demonstrate the enormous scale and impact of road death and injury and the urgent need for action.”

Accompanying the families on their memorial walk will be California Assembly member David Chiu, District 1 Supervisor Eric and trauma surgeon Dr. Rochelle Dicker.car crashcyclist fatalitiespedestrian deathTransittransportationWALK SF
