World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

Families of crash victims and elected representatives will gather at The DELTA Foundation (2508 Portland Ave) on Sunday, November 19 at 4:00 PM for Louisville's second annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. The event organizers, which include Vision Zero Louisville and Matthew's Bridge, Inc., are renewing their call for state legislation allowing speed safety cameras. According to the Federal Highway Administration, speed safety cameras are proven to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes. However, their use is currently illegal in Kentucky. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 19 states and the District of Columbia allow speed safety cameras, a form of automated traffic enforcement.

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is a global event held annually on the third Sunday in November to honor those who have lost their lives or been impacted by roadway crashes. Last year, Louisville Metro Council passed an ordinance calling for zero traffic deaths by 2050 through a transportation safety initiative called Vision Zero Louisville. The initiative, which is managed by Louisville Metro Government's Department of Public Works, prioritizes public safety and the prevention of fatal and serious injury crashes on surface streets.

Louisville's first annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims was held in 2022 at Iroquois Park to spotlight deadly arterial roadways, such as New Cut Road, and advocate for state legislation allowing automated traffic enforcement. The vigil included remarks from local and state representatives and loved ones of those killed in traffic collisions.
