World day of remembrance for road traffic victims: Norwich Green Councillors to attend Memorial Service at Cathedral [Media release]
World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims creates a link between victims of road crashes around the world, all of whom deserve to be alive today to fulfil their hopes and dreams instead of been killed, prematurely and violently. Norwich Green Party Councillors are proud to be part of this event – Councillors Read (Norwich Green Party Transport Spokesman) and Boswell (Green County Councillor) will be among those attending.
As part of the act of remembrance, there will be a display board for photographs of loved ones who have been killed in road traffic crashes. There will also be an opportunity to write the name/s of those killed in road traffic crashes on an Oak Leaf card, which will be placed at the foot of the Easter Resurrection Candle.
Said Cllr. Read, "I feel passionately about those needlessly and pointlessly killed in the annual car-nage on our roads. Initiatives such as speed-limit-reductions, safety cameras, pedestrian crossings, and better support for public transport are key parts of what will bring down this terrible toll, in years to come."
