Gear up for Road Safety Week!

Written by | News

Road safety charity, Brake, work hard to remind people of the importance of staying safe on the roads. But next week, they’re asking all of us to get involved. Road Safety Week 2014 will take place between 17th and 23rd November, and will see schools, workplaces and communities come together in aid of road safety.

Look out for each other

This year’s Road Safety Week will be focusing on looking out for each other whilst out on the road – whether you’re a pedestrian, a cyclist or a driver.

Brake are calling upon all road users to work together in making the roads a safer place to be, and they think we can all be better behaved on the roads in order to make that happen. Whether you travel on two wheels, four wheels or you’re simply just a big fan of walking, Road Safety Week is the time for everyone to focus on staying safe.

Get involved

If you’re thinking of getting involved, there are a number of ways in which you can help to raise awareness. Whether you want to donate, raise money, or hold an event, there are a number of different ways to promote and support Road Safety Week. Here’s just a few of them:

  • Donate – You can donate any amount – no matter how big or small – via Brake’s just Giving page here.
  • Hold a Bright Day for Brake – Whether you hold it in a school, your workplace, or in the local community, a Bright Day for Brake is the perfect opportunity to dress up in something ridiculous while reminding people of the importance of looking out for cyclists.
  • Highway code pub quiz – We all love a pub quiz, so why not hold your very own quiz night to raise awareness and a few donations?
  • A Beep Beep! Day – If you work with children aged 2-7, a Beep Beep! Day is a fun way to spread the message and get the kids involved in road safety.
