This site also provides information about other ways that victims of road crashes are remembered. Remembrance events and ceremonies are held all over the world, including in the UK, for the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims in November and during August - National Road Victims month.

The Remember me memorials site has been designed to link closely to RoadPeace's roadside Remember Me plaques
. For many people a tribute at the scene of the crash is an important way to mark what has happened and draw public attention to the dangers on our roads. Yet the placement and permanence of roadside memorials continues to be an issue of intense debate between the bereaved, local authorities and local communities. RoadPeace is encouraging all local authorities to create a memorial on this site in circumstances where roadside tributes are removed so that people can be remembered in a lasting way.
