Last year, more than 40,000 families lost a loved one on our nation’s roadways. November 19th is World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, a chance to reflect on the human toll of these senseless tragedies and join together to drive down heartache. As millions of Americans get on the roads to travel home and spend the holiday reconnecting with friends and loved ones, take a personal stand against speeding, distracted or impaired driving, and failing to yield to pedestrians and cyclists. Please, don’t leave another heart on the pavement.
