Remember me

The Remember Me plaque, featuring a single red anemone on a black background, was created by Sweetapple and RoadPeace as the first nationwide public acknowledgement for those killed and injured on Britain's roads. It is also a tribute to the depth of loss felt by their families.

They are an arresting, universally understood and non-denominational reminder of the dangers we all face when using the roads. The red flower represents a scarlet anemone - a flower, in mythology, associated with love and loss.

Since its launch on 31 August 2003, hundreds of Remember Me plaques are marking the places where someone has been killed or seriously injured in a road crash. The signs highlight the scale of road deaths and injuries.  At the launch event, RoadPeace Chair, Cynthia Barlow, spoke poignantly about the death of her daughter and why this roadside memorial was so important to her.  The launch was supported by representatives of the Metropolitan Police and by Jenny Jones, London Assembly Member.  

More information about Remember Me plaques is available from RoadPeace including details of how to request a plaque if you would like to put one up at the scene of a fatal crash.
