Traffic accident victims in the country will be remembered and honored on November 20, this year in an event organised by a youth organisation known as Youth Education Through Sports Tanzania (YES Tanzania).

This is contained in a press release issued yesterday by YES Tanzania coordinator Joan Lyimo.

According Joan, the World Day of Remembrance is dedicated to those killed and injured in road crashes, their families and all others affected or involved in the aftermath.

"Road deaths and injuries are traumatic, unexpected, brutal, and their impacts are long-lasting, often permanent," read part of the press release, adding:

"Each year, millions of newly bereaved and injured people from every corner of the world are added to the many millions already suffering as a result of road crashes".

Joan said accidents happening in the country daily, which claims the lives of innocent people and leaving scores of people injured - other crippled, were avoidable and should not be happening, if road users are behaving responsibly when using roads.

"It is painful to see somebody's life being terminated in a brutal and traumatic way like accident," he said.

This special Remembrance Day, according to the press release, responds to the great need of road crash victims for public recognition of their loss and pain.

She said the Remembrance Day was founded in 1993 by the European Federation of Road Traffic Victims.

According to Joan, traffic police are doing a great job to reduce and eventually halt road carnages, but impunity of some of road users and acts of some unscrupulous traffic police seems to water down their efforts.

"Involvement of all road users in chatting out what they think is the best way to end road carnages is a sure and sustainable way of finding the solution to this menace," she said.
