Brake, the road safety charity, founded Road Safety Week in 1997 as an annual event to raise awareness about road safety and promote steps that everyone can take to stop these needless deaths and injuries year-round.
All sorts of people get involved – nurseries, schools, youth clubs, army bases, community campaigners, employers, sports clubs, fire officers, police services, local authorities, paramedics, driving instructors …. and we would love YOU to join forces with us and make a difference to road safety in your area!
Your involvement could be as simple as making the Brake Pledge and promoting it in your school/organization’s newsletter and putting up the posters from your action pack. Or you could make a bigger splash by teaming up with others in your area to launch a local campaign or run an event or roadshow promoting safer road use.
You could also use the Week to support Brake’s work by fundraising or making a donation. But Road Safety Week is your week, so what you do is your choice! We are always impressed at the creative ideas communities to come up with to get life-saving messages across.
