Before going on to read this post, I must let you know that it may be triggering to anyone who has experienced a road traffic-related loss at any moment in their life.

For those of you who have, my condolences are with you and with your families. Please reach out to me if there’s anything I can help you with.

All of these deaths, in some way or another, were preventable. World Day of Remembrance, coming up on this 15th of November, is a day to remember the lives that have been lost in road traffic accidents, and to think about ways in which we can save more drivers and road users in the near future. Any and every accident that’s happened on the world’s roads has been avoidable to some extent. Road Safety issues range from infrastructure issues, lack of education and behaviour issues, improper resource allocation and unavailability of proper medical care.

Solving this issue, now more than ever requires consistent collaboration between the private and public sector and tackling Road Safety with evidence-based methodologies that can be applied in communities across the world. The United Nations has set forth the Sustainable Development Goal of halving the total amount of road traffic fatalities by 2030; a goal that I – as a road user, mother of two children, and a loving friend of several who have passed while operating motor vehicles – will give my all to accomplish.

It doesn’t matter if you’re actively engaged in, or understand the logistics involving Road Safety…what matters is that you help us spread the word about its importance. Do it for the future safety of your kids, your friends, your colleagues, and in the loving memory of those who passed away.

Speak up about the issue, vote, and when you can, participate in initiatives to change the trend.

Remember remembrance day.
