THE Road Safety Authority (RSA) is  joining forces with members of An Garda Síochána, local county councils, emergency services and victim support groups to mark World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

Those who have died on our roads will be remembered at a series of services that will be held around the country, including one in Kerry.

In 2005, the United Nations adopted a resolution calling for governments to mark the third Sunday in November each year as World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. This year it falls on Sunday, November 19.

This day provides an opportunity to draw the public’s attention to road traffic crashes, their consequences and costs, and the measures which can be taken to prevent them. The day also provides an opportunity to remind governments and society of their responsibility to make roads safer.

A special memorial mass for World Day of Remembrance is taking place in St Mary’s Church Listowel Co Kerry at 9am. All are welcome to attend.
