A memorial wall will be unveiled at the event. Anyone who wants to pay their respects to those who have lost their lives on Cayman’s roads is invited to come out and contribute to the memorial.

To help publicise the important road safety messages, the organisers are making a specific appeal for anyone who has been affected by a fatal road crash, and is willing to talk about their experiences on video, to contact them by Thursday, 14 November.

We hope that it will have a huge impact on how people behave on the roads and that everyone will go away having learned something new that day. Of course our priority is to ensure that people go away with one main thought in their mind – and that’s that they ALL have a significant part to play in making Cayman’s roads safe. “
