PHOTOS: Remembering road crash victims

Government officials, road safety advocates, and family members of road crash victims gathered in separate events today at the UP Town Center and Manila Ocean Park to observe the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

In the Philippines, 28 people die everyday due to road crashes, according to the World Health Organization’s 2015 Global Status Report on Road Safety.

The day of remembrance, observed globally every third Sunday of November, aims to raise awareness and improve policy action on road crash fatalities and other safety issues.

Here are some photos.
