The Road Safety Directing Center is to hold an event to commemorate the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims 2014 on 16 November. The event will be held in memory of those who died or were injured from road crashes and to raise public awareness on road safety.

According to Director-General of the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, the event not only follows a United Nations resolution to observe the day on every third Sunday in November.

It is also in line with the policy of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) and the Thai government stipulating road accident reduction as a national agenda, aiming to promote sustainable road safety in Thailand.

This year, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims will be observed nationwide on Sunday, 16 November from 8 to 9 a.m.

Those who live in Bangkok can attend the event in front of the United Nations building on Ratchadamnoen Road while others may contact their respective provincial administration in order to be part of the efforts to prevent road accidents.
