HISTORY

Time for Remembering has been held at Parliament House on the third Sunday in November, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Trauma Victims since 2001. It allows attendees to commemorate the lives of loved ones lost on our roads, celebrates their lives and gives thanks for those who survived. It is also an opportunity to pay tribute to those agencies and individuals who work tirelessly to reduce road trauma and the associated trauma and grief.

Jeanette Suhr lost her 19-year-old daughter Tanya to a road crash in December 1991, a trauma that still impacts her every day. In her story below, Jeanette talks about how vital our Time for Remembering ceremony is for her. Thank you to Victoria Police for allowing us to share this video.
