Road Safety Week

Road Safety Week is happening 16th – 22nd November – Please get involved! We can send you posters to put in your workplace, which you can also get colleagues to pose with to start a workplace campaign.

“Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake, the road safety charity.

Road Safety Week aims to inspire thousands of schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the Week and beyond. It also provides a focal point for professionals working in road safety to boost awareness and engagement in their work.

Every year we choose a different road safety theme to focus on. The theme for 2020 is NO NEED TO SPEED. You can find out more about why we chose this theme and why speed matters when it comes to road safety here.

You can base your activities on our theme, or choose to focus on any other road safety issue that’s important in your area.”
