In October 2005, the United Nations general assembly adopted a resolution which calls for governments to mark the third Sunday in November each year as World day of remembrance for road traffic victims.

Road Transport And Safety Agency Head Of Public Relations Fredrick Mubanga has told 5fm radio in an emailed statement that the commemoration will be held in Lusaka at the Cathedral Of The Holy Cross.

The occasion will also be devoted to recognizing the efforts of dedicated country men and women who have worked tirelessly to prevent and save lives of road crash victims, some of whom have died in the process of saving other people’s lives.

Road traffic crashes kill nearly 2,000 people every year in Zambia and injure or disable more.
