National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims in Canada

road crash dayWednesday, November 16 is the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims in Canada. Since 2007, the third Wednesday of November has been set aside for Canadians to remember those who have lost their lives or been seriously injured on Canadian roads.

On average, five people die on Canada's roads each day*. Almost 1,900 people are killed each year, and almost another 149,000 are injured, 9,647 seriously.*

Facts:
The prevalence of drug driving is now rivaling alcohol impaired driving
Distracted driving is a growing safety concern; Canada's youth are the demographic most likely to text while driving*
These high risk factors can contribute to collisions and are all preventable:
Driving impaired: Alcohol, drugs
Speeding and/or aggressive driving
Driver distraction ( e.g.: texting, cell phone use) and/or fatigue
Failure to wear a seat belt

Road crashes impact everyone. Victims, families and friends suffer the losses first hand, but so do entire communities. On this day, communities across Canada are joining with their citizens, road safety stakeholders, enforcement officials and support groups in remembering those lost, and to recognize that 'safe driving saves lives.'

Moments Matter
