It is important that we never forget the individuals whose lives have been lost on our roads. These pages are a memorial to all those people. Your loved one whether a partner, child, friend, family member or colleague will not be forgotten.
Why a tree? During these difficult times, many of us turn to nature for a sense of peace and tranquillity. To reflect this we have used the colour green and the symbol of a tree for this memorial. When adding your tribute you can select a leaf design that appeals to you the most such as a heart shaped leaf or an acorn to symbolise a young life lost.
We are offering the opportunity to leave a tribute as one way you can remember a loved one, but here are some other ways you may prefer. Please do what is right for you.
Naming a star in memory of the person who has died
Creating memory blankets or memory bears for children and adults
Photo albums or photo frames
Creating a song as a legacy to the person who has died
Christmas decorations engraved with the name of the person who has died
There is further information on the sudden website including an online guide for bereaved people.

By remembering your loved one here we hope to raise awareness of the numbers of people who die on our roads every year. During 2021 despite lockdown, 15 people lost their lives on Warwickshire’s roads as the result of a road traffic collision and 216 people suffered serious, often life changing injuries. Our new Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership Strategy to 2030 sets an ambitious target of a 50% reduction in road deaths and serious injuries by 2030.
To achieve this we have adopted a ‘safe systems’ approach that looks at all aspects of road safety including road and vehicle design and post collision response. People’s behaviour needs to change too and that’s why we are asking the public to pledge to follow traffic laws and to do everything they can to help prevent collisions from happening. For example by not speeding or driving whilst distracted.
Join us in our campaign to reduce road deaths and serious injuries by helping us to raise awareness of the lives that have been lost.
You can also help to spread road safety messages by sharing our posts on Facebook from @WarwickshireRoadSafety or Twitter @WarksRoadSafety or by talking to people.
World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims
The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims takes place on the third Sunday in November every year as the appropriate acknowledgment of victims of road traffic collisions and their families. It was started by the British road crash victim charity, RoadPeace, in 1993 and was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005.
In 2022 we held a face to face memorial as part of the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic victims on the 20 November 2022. To watch the recording please click here.
