Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among those aged 05 - 29 (WHO). Prioritising speed over safety, and designing road infrastructure that favours the strong and able, is why we have arrived here. Today, World Day of Remembrance, is a time to remember those that died on our roads, and promise ourselves to never repeat the mistakes of our past. Let's break the trend. #WDoR2023 #SafetyAndJustice

Mr.Ganesan lost his father to a #speeding vehicle. He shares how road crashes not only kill but also have a huge social & economical impact on families. His voice urges us to be more responsible on roads. What are your thoughts? #RoadAccidents #RoadSafety #WorldDayOfRemembrance
Mr.Rajesh Khanna, a resident of #Chennai highlights how distracted driving has been normalised & why we don't see it as a critical road risk anymore. As a road crash victim (leg injury) he also sheds light on the #employment & financial challenges that survivors face on a daily basis. We cannot shrug off the real financial implications of even minor crashes & how some of these can be life changing.
