Join us in honouring these lives, along with those seriously injured and the emergency services who live with the aftermath of road trauma on Sunday 17th November 2024, as part of World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year.
Over the last 30 years, more than 44,000 lives have been lost on Australian roads and hundreds of thousands have been hospitalised.
We’re asking Australians to Reflect and Remember all the lives impacted by road trauma this World Day of Remembrance by lighting a candle at home.
By reflecting on and remembering our road trauma victims, we can inspire others to make the change to prevent more loss of life.
On World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, we also pay tribute to the dedicated first responders and medical professionals who deal with the after effect of the trauma of road crashes on a daily basis.
