The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims takes place every year on the third Sunday of November.
In 2016 the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is on the 20 November and the day will focus on both the overall scale and the individual devastation caused by road deaths and injuries.
Every day throughout the world almost 4,000 people are killed and many hundreds of thousands injured on roads. Many more have to cope with bereavement or the effects of injury and the impact upon families and communities around the world is devastating.
World Day of Remembrance events and services will take place throughout the UK.
In 2015, there were 1,732 fatalities and 22,137 serious injuries on British roads, a further 186,209 received other injuries.
