Each year, August marks National Road Victim Month, established in memory of Princess Diana, who passed away on the 31st of August 1997, and Bridget Driscoll who died on the 17th August 1896 and was the first recorded victim of a motor car accident. This month serves as an opportunity to reflect on the devastating impact of road traffic accidents and calls for heightened awareness and collective efforts to improve road safety.
