The South Australian Road Trauma Support Team will today hold a memorial service for the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
Memorial events are held around the world on the third Sunday of November to remember the many millions of people killed and injured on the world’s roads. The event also honours the families and wider communities impacted, including emergency service workers.
Today’s service, which will be proudly attended by representatives of SA Police, is being held at the Road Safety Centre, Port Rd, Adelaide at 11am.
It will reflect on the devastating effects of road trauma for victims, first responders, witnesses and emergency services, with an honour roll to read recalling the loved ones lost in fatal crashes in South Australia.
Open to the public, it will be attended by people who have lost loved ones, been seriously injured, witnessed a crash or been impacted by road trauma.
The event will be attended by David Basham on behalf of Road Safety Minister, Corey Wingard, the Commissioner of Victims’ Rights, Bronwyn Killmier, and the Officer in Charge of the Traffic Services Branch, Superintendent Bob Gray.
An ensemble of the Band of the South Australia Police will be playing at the event.
The Road Trauma Support Team (RTST) of South Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that is supported by the Commissioner of Victims’ Rights.
