Leading up to World Day of Remembrance, one group is raising awareness by catching the eyes of drivers across the city. 

People with Living Streets Alliance are raising 4-foot human silhouettes at every location where someone has died because of a traffic crash. 

The Alliance says so far this year there have been 57 deaths across 53 locations. They say this is more than double the amount from last year at this time. 

Next Sunday on World Day of Remembrance Living Streets Alliance will hold a vigil outside of city hall in honor of the victims and their families.
