Traffic accidents are one of the major causes of death and disability worldwide. Moreover, accidents can also slow down the process of economic development.
Since 1993, Peace Road has initiated the "World Day of Remembrance of the victims of road traffic accidents." On October 27, 2005, the General Assembly of the United Nations officially recognized and selected third Sunday in November each year as "The World Day of Remembrance of the victims of road traffic accidents" (it is  also known as the "World Day of Remembrance of the victims died from traffic accidents") on a global scale. Since then, this day is celebrated in many countries on all continents. It has become an important tool of the global effort to improve traffic safety. This is an opportunity to attract the attention of the public about the extent of the damage on both the spiritual and economic causes of traffic accidents and to commemorate the victims of traffic accidents. The "World Day of Remembrance of the victims died from traffic accidents" this year was held on Sunday November 15, 2015 with the message "To commemorate the dead - For people left".
According to the United Nations, each year about 1.3 million people die and about 20-50 million people injured in traffic accidents. Traffic accidents on roads are one of the major causes of death for people at the age from five to 44.
Besides, traffic accidents can slow down the process of human’s economic development. For some countries with low or moderate incomes, losses caused by traffic accidents even exceed the total amount of development aid they receive. This is a burden for the economy of the countries directly affected by the health services, rehabilitation services and other direct costs. Also, the traffic accidents can also cause significant pressure for the affected families as they face medical expenses and rehabilitation, funeral expenses and lost revenue which they should have earned as well as misery and, emotional harm.
Traffic accidents are unexpected events, causing lasting psychological trauma and the permanent consequences. Each year, millions of people were injured or fell into mourning in every corner of the world.
Grief and anguish of those who suffer the consequences of traffic accidents is very persistent and particularly more severe when the victim is young people and many of the accidents that can be avoided.
Therefore, the international community spend a day commemorating the victims of traffic accidents in order to ease the pain of loss of the victim; listening and recording their thoughts and feelings.
The road traffic accidents can be avoided. In recent years, many countries, particularly high-income countries have made significant progress in reducing the number of deaths on the road. However, these positive employment is still very limited in comparison with the sad reality still continuing for hours every day on the planet.
In a message to be sent at the anniversary, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon emphasized: "World Day of Remembrance of the victims of road traffic accidents" is the last time to think about unnecessary tragedies occur every day on the roads of the world.
According to senior official of the United Nations, despite significant improvements in road safety, we still face with many injuries and deaths which are quite alarming.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the government to tighten the enforcement of speeding, drink-driving, use of seat belts when driving cars, wearing helmets when riding motorcycle and protective gear for children because all these actions have been proven to be able to help saving lives.

More than ever in this significant celebration, the international community should jointly commit to mobilize all efforts to make each route more safe and bring peace and happiness to all people.

It is believed that the number of the people who have died in traffic accidents is much higher than that of the people who have died of cancer or any other disease.

It is time to upgrade the whole system of the main streets in this city and apply strong efficient measures both to punish those who break traffic laws and to call for every citizen’s consciousness of obeying these laws strictly whenever he/she travels along the street in this city.
