Motion text

That this House welcomes the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims held on the third Sunday of November each year; notes that this special Day was launched in 1993 by UK road victim charity RoadPeace and promoted by them nationally and internationally until it was adopted by the United Nations on 26th October 2005 `as the appropriate acknowledgement for victims of road traffic crashes and their families'; recognises that the loss of lives on the road and the suffering of bereaved and injured road crash victims deserves much greater recognition than has been provided until now; and calls on the Government to give official recognition to World Remembrance Day as a means of showing compassion and care to the millions of UK road crash victims highlighting the scale and impact of road deaths and injuries and the need to address road danger and its consequences with renewed urgency.
