November 16, 2022, National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims
On this National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims, the Chatham-Kent Police Service is asking everyone to take a moment to pause and reflect on all those impacted by severe and fatal road collisions.
The National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims is a day set aside annually to remember those killed or seriously injured on Canada’s roadways. Many collisions are preventable and result from driving while impaired, speeding and/or driving aggressively, driving while distracted or failing to wear a seat belt.
The pain of losing a loved one in a collision is life-changing for family members and friends. Emergency crews, police and medical professionals, who deal daily with the traumatic aftermath of road crashes, are also significantly impacted by these collisions.
