Every day, 5 people are killed on our streets in Britain, and 70 are seriously injured. These numbers have been increasing year on year since 2016. This page has been created as a memorial to those who have lost their lives on the streets of Greater Manchester.
If you or your family have suffered from the loss of a loved one due to road violence, Road Peace and Brake are among the charities that offer a range of support, from emotional to legal. Vision Zero is an organisation that seeks to eliminate all deaths on our roads.
Behind each of these statistics is a human being and their family. pic.twitter.com/eMYUzQDMFS
