- Help Virginia Families for Safe Streets commemorate the 2020 World Day of Remembrance.
- Sign up to attend virtual event to advocate for action to stop road deaths and injuries.
This Sunday is the 25th annual World Day of Remembrance (WDoR) for Road Traffic Victims. It is a day to remember the many millions who have been killed and seriously injured on the world’s roads and to acknowledge the suffering of all affected victims, families, and communities. Its supporters around the globe also use the day to pay tribute to the dedicated emergency crews, police, and medical professionals who deal daily with the traumatic aftermath of road crashes.
FABB encourages its supporters to plan now to join the Fairfax, Alexandria, Arlington, and Richmond chapters of Virginia Families for Safe Streets in commemorating the World Day of Remembrance with a “virtual” event on November 15, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. The event will include state legislators and local elected officials who will hear stories from those affected by these tragedies leading to somber discussions of policy opportunities at the next General Assembly. FABB shares in the Virginia Families for Safe Streets’ advocacy priority for speed reduction legislation that includes more use of automatic speed enforcement and allows municipalities to reduce residential and business districts speed limits to 15 mph.
