Nine Living Streets Alliance staffers board members and volunteers placed human silhouettes in 53 locations where 57 people have been killed so far this year in traffic crashes.
"This is to show the magnitude of this problem and create awareness that is leading up to the World Day of Remembrance on Nov. 19. We will be honoring those lives lost in traffic crashes and issue a call for safer streets in Tucson," said Evren Sonmez, the program manager with the Living Streets Alliance.
It is to draw attention to World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, an international event adopted by the UN General Assembly, to pay respects to the 1.25 million killed on the world's roads, according to Living Streets Alliance.
