The National Transportation Safety Committee ( NTSC ) has planned a host of activities in response to the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on November 17.

A requiem for those who died in traffic accidents will be held at Bai Dinh Pagoda in the northern province of Ninh Binh on that day.

Communication campaigns on traffic safety will be conducted at schools across the country on November 11 while Radio The Voice of Vietnam will devote the entire day on November 17 for programmes about traffic safety.

From November 11 – 15, the NTSC will send its officials to visit families of dead victims, particularly those in difficult circumstances, in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Thai Nguyen, Bac Kan, Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan, Long An and Tien Giang provinces.

Provincial transportation safety committees are also set to organise remembrance activities during this time.

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is held on the third Sunday of November each year.-VNA
