Road crash victim day inihirit

By: - 09/10/2019

INAPRUBAHAN ng House committee on transportation ang panukalang national day of remembrance para sa mga biktima ng aksidente sa kalsada.

Sa ilalim ng panukala, ang National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims, Survivors and their Bereaved Families ay ipagdiriwang tuwing ikatlong linggo ng Nobyembre.

Ang panukala ay akda nina House Deputy Majority Leader Ria Christina Fariñas, Probinsyano Ako Rep. Rudys Caesar Fariñas at Western Samar Rep. Edgar Mary Sarmiento, chairman ng komite.

Inaprubahan na noong 17th Congress ang kaparehong panukala kaya hindi na pinatagal pa ng komite ang pagtalakay dito.

“Since 2006, the number of road crash deaths in the Philippines has been increasing despite the country’s goal to halve the number of deaths by 2020,” saad ng magkapatid na Fariñas sa House bill 698.

Noong 2006 ay 6,806 ang bilang nga mga nasawi dahil sa aksidente sa kalsada at umakyat ito sa 8,636 noong 2014 o 27 porsyentong pagtaas sa loob ng pitong taon.

Mula 2006 hanggang 2014, ang death rate ay may tumataas umano ng average na 1.4 porsyento.

Nasawi si Rodolfo Fariñas Jr., kapatid ng Fariñas solons at anak ni dating House Majority Leader Rodolfo Farinas, sa isang aksidente noong Nobyembre 15, 2015 na nagkataon ba 10th United Nations World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

“Giving significance to the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims commemorates the millions killed or injured in road accidents and pays tribute to the dedicated emergency crews, police and medical professionals who deal daily with the traumatic aftermath of road death and injury.”
