‘One by One’ re launches for World Day of Remembrance 2018
Sunday 18 November is World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. For the victims, their families and friends and the emergency service workers impacted by road trauma it is our chance to reflect on every person behind every crash. It is our chance to build fresh motivation for action worldwide.
The 2018 event theme is Roads have Stories – too many stories of lives lost and life-changing injuries. See how improving roads to a 3-star or better standard will save lives and serious injuries, as well as the economic benefits of maximising the percentage of travel on 3-star or better roads by 2030 at https://www.vaccinesforroads.org/business-case-for-safer-roads/.
WDoR 2018 slogan: “Roads have Stories” is linked to the 2nd pillar of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020: Safer Roads and Mobility. Roads and streets are more than connections from point A to point B. They tell stories, some of them tragic, that are worth remembering. #WDoR2018 Find out more from the WDoR 2018 website.
In 2017, iRAP and a group of volunteers created One-by-One, a song that captures the tragedy that happens too often on the world’s roads. Check out the song and video clip here. iRAP welcomes all in the global community to listen to the song and share it with colleagues, family and friends via social media, website and newsletter platforms in the lead up to 18 November.
Whilst you’re doing that, iRAP will be continuing our work with our partners in over 90 countries around the world to eliminate high-risk roads and make our roads safer for all road users – #3StarorBetter. We know we have the potential to save lives – one by one – as we already are. Upgrades of roads from Belize to Brazil, Chile to China and Uganda to the UK are saving lives each and every day, for years to come.
