Brigitte Chaudhry MBE, RoadPeace founder and WDR co-ordinator, whose son Mansoor was tragically killed on the road in 1990, says:

“My real hope is that the awareness – of the terrible toll of road death and injury and the suffering of road victims – raised by the World Day will contribute to a serious reduction in road danger and future deaths and injuries, so that we will not need to remember many, if any, new road victims on our World Day of Remembrance in coming years.”
