Yusuf said that the “World Day Remembrance of RTC Victims”, which is a weeklong event, is usually commemorated annually on the third week of every November.





“It is to remind all road users to continuously support the 30-km/hr (20mph) speed limits recently recommended by World Health Organization (WHO) for vehicles at cities, towns and villages as a way of reducing speed related crashes in buildup areas.

“The compliance to the above recommendations by all categories of vehicles could not be overemphasized,” he said.

“The theme of 2021 World Day of Remembrance of Road Traffic Victims is dedicated to erasing the menace of traffic crashes which calls for Remember, Act and Support.

“In particular those of pedestrians and all other vulnerable road users like Children, Elderly, Disabled and all other exposed road users like cyclists, motorcyclists and tricycle `keke’ riders.
