World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims (WDR) is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year – to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected. It is also a Day on which we thank the emergency services and reflect on the tremendous burden and cost of this daily continuing disaster to families, communities and countries, and on ways to halt it.” Read more from the WDR site

I only recently decided to start writing a series of blog posts about awareness days. I hadn’t actually considered how much research would have to go into each post, and in writing this particular post, I struggled to find any inspiration and exactly what to write about in the post. In a strange coincidence, I went out to pay a speeding fine, and ran into John Bond, who was the Estate Agent we worked with in purchasing our house. He lost a daughter to a road accident. I think it is fitting that this post is dedicated to the NPO they then started: “BADD – Bond Against Drunk Drivers”.

I hope that this post can raise awareness of what they are trying to do, and just maybe even bring in some donations for the NPO as well.

You can read more about their story on their website (www.badd.co.za), where you can also buy a bumper sticker in support of their cause, or donate to the banking details on the same page.
