Cyclists and supporters will be attending an event for the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on Sunday, 20 November 2022 at the National Cycling Centre at 7am.
NGO Arrive Alive said in a statement that the World Day of Remembrance is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year.
The group said the commemoration will highlight the need for road safety.
“It provides a national platform for road traffic victims and their families to remember those killed and seriously injured on the roads; acknowledge the crucial work of the emergency services; draw attention to the generally trivial legal response to culpable road deaths and injuries and advocate for an appropriately serious response; advocate for better support for road traffic victims and victim families; and promote evidence-based actions to prevent and eventually stop further road traffic deaths and injuries.”
The group said on Sunday, long-distance cyclists are invited to partake by cycling from various points such as Jean Pierre Complex, Trincity Mall, Bankers Insurance, Chaguanas and Mannie Ramjohn Stadium to the National Cycling Centre from 6am.
The event is sponsored by Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited (Gold); bptt, Yara Limited and Bankers Insurance T&T (Silver), Sagicor General Insurance, Atlantic LNG, Starbucks, Capital Signal Company Limited, Methaniex and ANSA Motors (Bronze).
