TRIBUTES have been paid to people killed or seriously injured on Warwickshire’s roads to mark World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims today (Sunday November 19).
Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Philip Seccombe, joined his counterparts from across the West Midlands in marking the day of remembrance.
They have each committed in their Police and Crime Plans to reduce the number of road victims in their areas through Vision Zero, which aims to achieve zero road deaths by 2050 by putting victims at the heart of road safety policies.
The PCCs also continue to prioritise victims by ensuring specialist support services are available for anyone seriously injured in a road collision and the bereaved.
Mr Seccombe said: “The World Day of Remembrance provides an opportunity to underline that the pain each loss brings to our communities is not taken for granted and that, through concerted effort, we can bring about change.
“As Chair of Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership, I have been working with a wide range of partners locally, regionally and nationally to ensure the principles of Vision Zero are embedded across all of our work.
“There is a shared determination to make our roads safer and to ultimately get to a position where no-one has to suffer the devastating consequences of a death or serious injury.”
